Steakhouses are a rare find on the Upper West Side, but a new one is about to be added to the very short list. Bruno Selimaj, who owns Club A Steakhouse on East 58th St. has taken the space that, up until last month, housed the neighborhood favorite Loi, and plans to morph it into Lincoln Square Steak in time for a November opening.
"We will serve an a la carte menu as well as a pre and post theater four-course prix fixe,'' says Selimaj, who sources his meat from Master Purveyors, a company that also supplies Peter Luger and Wolfgang's. In addition to the regular wine list, he will offer 20 whites and 40 reds for $25. Architect Glen Coben, who designed Carbone, Batard, and Alex Stupak's forthcoming casual taqueria, Empellon al Pastor, will transform the room from Greek to meat.
Meanwhile Maria Loi, the so-called "Martha Stewart of Greece," is rumored to be scouting new locations for the shuttered Loi.
