Short-lived JoJo Eating House & Bar is now just a distant memory. Restaurateur Dee Lincoln (who co-founded the legendary Del Frisco's and also presides over her eponymously named Bubble Bar in Rosewood Court) is preparing to open a brand new concept in the space called Dee Lincoln Steak & Burger Bar, promising "updated steakhouse fare and inventive burger recipes in a comfortable and relaxed setting."
Leading the kitchen will be Juliard Ishikuza, who's done time in some of the city's big-name kitchens including The Mansion on Turtle Creek. The menu is diverse both in cuisine and price, with starters like tuna sashimi and miso-glazed eggplant ranging from $9 to $15, and steaks hovering around the $30 to $50 range; the most expensive burger, The Voodoo, comes in at $15 and is topped with a crabcake and crispy onions. The trendy kale Caesar salad makes an appearance on the menu as well, and there's a small selection of sides including the now-requisite Brussels sprouts with bacon, plus a dessert menu that strays from the typical creme brulee and chocolate cake options with "Cocoa Cola" marshmallow cake and blueberry bread pudding with butterscotch sauce.
The restaurant opens for dinner on September 12; lunch service will begin September 16.
