Reinventing the steakhouse experience, Knife is the highly anticipated concept from regionally and nationally acclaimed, James Beard-nominated and Bravo’s “Top Chef” contestant Chef John Tesar and named to Esquire magazine’s best new restaurants 2014. Offering high-quality, exceptional meats from Texan ranchers and farmers, Knife features dry-aged classic and prime cuts as well as specialty cuts such as chuck flap, outside skirt, culotte, beef cheeks, oxtail and Akuaushi beef. Knife’s extensive charcuterie program and raw bar selections as well as house made pasta, vegetarian and seafood dishes, takes it beyond the steakhouse. Chef de Cuisine Jeffrey Kent, a visionary in the culinary industry who has worked with Tesar on-and-off throughout the past 20 years, drives the kitchen. Master Pastry Chef David Collier, of the award-winning Spoon Bar & Kitchen, reinvents classic desserts while sommelier Sabrina Snodderley leads the wine program. Designed by Breckinridge/Taylor, the decor modernizes traditional steakhouse elements and complements Tesar’s culinary artistry with an equally artistic and appealing design featuring rustic chandeliers, rich fabrics and leather upholstery.  Knife is open daily for breakfast 6:30-11 a.m., lunch 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and dinner 5-11 p.m. Visit for more information and keep up with Knife events and news on Facebook and Twitter. For reservations, call 214.443.9339.
