PB Steak, the fifth restaurant by Pubbelly Restaurant Group, opens
Thursday, January 10. I was invited to one of the two "friends and
family" dinners, where staff are given a "dress rehearsal" before paying
Pubbelly concept, the staff will likely have to hit the ground running
come opening day, so these "f&f" nights are important training
tools. As far as dress rehearsals go, this evening went smoothly. Our server was knowledgeable, pointing out favorite dishes, explaining preparation, and answering questions on everything from decor to ingredients. Water was refilled and plates were cleared almost immediately.
The old Joe Allen space has been completely transformed. Yes, the concrete dog still greets guests, but the entrance has been moved to the street instead of the long walkway on the side of the structure.

wood tables have been added for outdoor seating, and the interior is a warm and lively space with exposed wood beams and concrete. Chalkboard walls note specialty cocktails and desserts, and the room is filled with inviting copper
hues. Pubelly fans will instantly feel at home, and "newbies" will be charmed.
