Since Chef Stephan Pyles has officially moved on from his iconic (and eponymous) restaurant to fully focus on Flora Street Cafe, the building at 1807 Ross has sat empty. Now, a restaurateur is looking to bring a meaty new eatery to the space.
D Magazine reports that Corrientes 348, an Argentinian steakhouse, will take over the restaurant formerly known as Stephan Pyles. According to a spokesperson for the restaurant, Corrientes 348 comes to the U.S. via South America, where outposts currently operate in Sao Paolo, Curitiba, and Rio de Janeiro.
Sadly for those among us who really, really love those meat-covered swords at Fogo, Corrientes 348 isn’t really much like a Brazilian steakhouse. Instead, it will offer more of a high-end steakhouse feel with a menu steeped in Argentinian tradition, with prime meats on offer via an a la carte menu.
Construction is currently underway to revamp the dining room at 1807 Ross. Look for Corrientes 348 to land sometime this spring.
UPDATE: This post has been updated to reflect corrected details on Corrientes 348 provided by a spokesperson for the restaurant. More information on the concept is forthcoming.
