An Ohio-based steakhouse with restaurants in four states is opening its first location in Michigan, taking over the former Forte in Birmingham.
Hyde Park Prime Steakhouse
could be open by the end of June, says John Heiney, executive director, Birmingham Principal Shopping District.
Company representatives could not be reached to confirm an opening date, but Heiney says extensive renovations are happening in the space at 201 South Old Woodward, in the heart of downtown Birmingham.
Hyde Park Prime Steakhouses are each designed to fit their location - boutique style. There are currently 12 steakhouses, most in Columbus and Cleveland and others in downtown Pittsburgh, New York and Florida.
The restaurant does steak in a variety of way and also serves fish and seafood, including a raw bar. When the Birmingham location opens, several jobs will be created. The exact number will be known closer to opening day.
