Steak 48 had a buzzy December opening at Apex SouthPark, and this upscale steakhouse with locations in Phoenix, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Houston is worth the hype. It joins Oak Steakhouse, Del Frisco’s, The Palm, and Ruth’s Chris in Charlotte’s high-end shopping and dining hub—and still stands out. If steak is your favorite, or even if it’s not, you’ll be able to justify a $350 dinner for two.
Owners Jeffrey and Michael Mastro and their father, Dennis, reimagined the old-school, brooding steakhouse aesthetic. Instead of mahogany panels and dim lighting with clinking martini glasses, Steak 48 has multiple dining areas and six private dining suites with a view of an open kitchen surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass walls. The 11,500-square-foot space also has an in-house butcher shop, raw bar, and 6,000-bottle wine vault.
