Steak 48, an award-winning, upscale steakhouse concept from two of the most recognized veterans in steakhouse culture – brothers Jeffrey and Michael Mastro, and partner Scott Trolio – The acclaimed trio, recognized as 2020 James Beard Award Semifinalists in the “Outstanding Restaurateur” category, will introduce a surprisingly unexpected, non-traditional approach to modern steakhouse dining with a menu offering the best in steak, seafood and shellfish alongside classic steakhouse side dishes and appetizer favorites. Mike and Jeff Mastro have spent their lives defining and reinventing the experience of fine dining. Their latest creation – Steak 48 is the culmination of everything they have accomplished, cultivated, and learned along the way. Their approachable, high-energy culture and extreme focus on details make Steak 48 the height of service and cuisine – places where the brothers are proud to serve, and their guests are proud to dine.
Our promise is to project and deliver a remarkable feeling to all of our guests – to make them feel special and welcome from the moment they are seated and their evening begins, to the time they leave. Whether it’s their hundredth time or their first time, we treat all guests with kindness and consideration, creating a total experience of excellent food and atmosphere that our people and company are known for.
Steak 48 was created to break traditional boundaries associated with steakhouse dining. When developing Steak 48, the Mastro brothers thoughtfully curated a concept set to exceed guests’ expectations – from bold art, to a spacious layout with multiple intimate dining corners, to personal service touches that render the restaurant unpretentiously approachable and fit for any occasion.
