John Tesar has finally opened Knife Plano and it might be his most ambitious project yet. Here are the first pictures that have been released of the new Knife.
The 7,000 square-foot restaurant–plus the Knife Butcher Shop and Knife Burger–includes an expanded dry-aging meat box that holds 500 pieces of meat at any given time, making it ten times larger than the meat locker at the original Dallas location. There has never been more 240-day dry aged steak available. This is the highest concentration of Tesar that the metroplex has ever seen. He’s not holding back. You can even get dry aged fois gras, so naturally, every foodie in the city is salivating and lining up at the door.
While in the restaurant guests can savor $25 steaks and $220 steaks, they can also duck into the butcher shop and get some ribeyes to take home, or go to the stall next door for a famous Ozersky burger.
For a long time, Tesar’s goal has been to become the King of Steak in Texas. “It’s not arrogant for me to say that my endgame is ‘Franklin is to Barbecue like Tesar is to Steaks in Texas’” he said once in an interview. “…Aaron Franklin is so famous because he makes this brisket that’s exceptional and different from everybody else’s. That’s what puts us in the same league.”
For carnivores, this is kind of a big deal. Welcome to a new league of steak.
