2-Feb-15 – Construction will start soon on a “high energy, fun” steakhouse in River North’s Museum of Broadcast Communications.

A building permit was issued on Friday for “STK,” a restaurant opening this year on the north side of the museum, facing West Kinzie Street. The project will cost $750,000 and include the build-out of 9,268 square feet on the ground floor and 4,195 square feet in the basement.

The restaurant is owned by The ONE Group Hospitality, Inc., a publicly traded company based in New York. Chicago will be the company’s tenth STK location. They signed a lease with the museum on June 9, 2014.

The ONE Group Hospitality describes STK as “a steakhouse concept that features a high-energy, fun environment that encourages social interaction.”

The average check at an STK is $124 and 41 percent of that is spent on beverages.

LEADERS Magazine CEO Jonathan Segall (left), who started with one restaurant in New York’s fashionable Meatpacking District, said last fall, “STK is growing because it is more than a steakhouse. It’s an all-in-one club geared toward women, where guests can eat, drink, and listen to music.”

The architect is Jeremiah Johnson of Chicago. His firm, CBD Architects, is located on West Huron Street in River North. Johnson specializes in design for hospitality companies, having once worked in that industry. In 2012, he received a citation of merit from the Chicago chapter of the American Institute of Architects for Eduardo’s Enoteca, an Italian restaurant in Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood. He also designed The Boarding House, Stout Barrel House & Galley, and Hubbard Inn in River North.
