The "Surf and Turf" from chef Kelly English
announced Tuesday that it has begun work to transform the Range Steakhouse
into Kelly English Steakhouse
. The eponymous Kelly English
is the owner and chef of Restaurant Iris
in Memphis, Tennessee; in 2009, he was named a "Best New Chef" by Food & Wine
English will be importing at least one dish from the Restaurant Iris menu
to the steak house: "Surf and Turf," a strip steak stuffed with blue cheese and fried oysters and then topped with both bordelaise and hollandaise sauces as well as fried sage.
Kelly English Steakhouse is slated for a late October opening. For more on what to expect, read my interview with English
from July of this year.
