Harrah's Casino (777 Casino Center Drive, Maryland Heights; 314-770-8100) 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.
