host Tom Colicchio will close one of his New York restaurants, Craftsteak
, and reopen it next month as Colicchio & Sons.
Craftsteak, on the city's West Side, had been Colicchio's showcase for "beef sourced from the world's top ranchers and artisanal producers" and dry-aged on the premises. The new restaurant, Colicchio & Sons, will continue a focus on "farm-to-table" food, according to the Village Voice
. The front "tap room" will highlight artisanal beers.
The restaurant will close on Friday, the Voice reports. Colicchio & Sons will reopen at some point in January. Reservations are being accepted as of Jan. 11.
Colicchio will help cook along with Craftsteak's chef, Shane McBride, NBCNewYork.com
"With the economy people aren't really coming out for $100 steaks," Colicchio tells New York Magazine
. "That aside, it's a space I love, and I wanted to do something just a little personal there."
Colicchio has been doing a special Tuesday Dinner
series at Craft.
