NEW YORK, Jan. 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The power team behind Catch Hospitality Group (CHG), Tilman J. Fertitta, Mark Birnbaum, and Eugene Remm announced today the expansion of CATCH STEAK, their indoor outdoor 20,000 square foot Meatpacking steakhouse concept, with the opening of two new locations in the heart of Aspen and Los Angeles. Known for its successful seafood-centric restaurants, with locations in New York, Los Angeles, Playa del Carmen, and Las Vegas, these openings mark the most recent expansion of the CATCH brand.
"We are doubling down on the hospitality industry – opening CATCH STEAK in two new locations," said Tilman Fertitta, Catch Hospitality Group partner. "Aspen and Melrose Place will offer CATCH's world-renowned dishes with unparalleled, scenic views. This concept has been a huge success and we look forward to adding these destinations to our portfolio."
Set to open in Summer 2021, CHG will transform Aspen Kitchen, a bi-level space with a wraparound rooftop terrace located in the heart of town and steps from Aspen Mountain Gondola, alongside premium retail including Dior, Gucci, Moncler and the beloved Kemosabe, into Colorado's first CATCH STEAK bringing the approachable steakhouse to the popular ski town. The property spans 10,000 square feet between its rooftop and private cellar event space and will feature indoor and outdoor spaces. On the West Coast, CATCH STEAK is set to open in Fall 2021 at Fig & Olive's former 10,000 sq ft. flagship location on world famous Melrose Place, just steps away from the original CATCH LA.
"Aspen has become a second home and a community that means a great deal to me and my family. Bringing CATCH STEAK to this market felt like the perfect match to our lighter, brighter and fresher take on a classic steakhouse. As an LA resident, I've always found Melrose Place to be one of the most beautiful blocks. We have proven that what works in New York City works here and we're so excited to get open and give people something new to try," said Mark Birnbaum, one of three partners of Catch Hospitality Group.
Both of the split-level locations will follow the design blueprint of the original CATCH STEAK in New York City featuring unique indoor and outdoor dining spaces with decor that mixes classic steakhouse motifs with vibrant, energetic and inviting design. To bring both concepts to life, CHG has retained award-winning architecture and design firm Rockwell Group to combine the energy and DNA of a CATCH property with new and fresh designs.
"We believe that the future of experiential dining shines bright and that CATCH STEAK is well positioned to bring that experience to the LA and Aspen markets in 2021." Eugene Remm, one of three partners of Catch Hospitality Group.
CATCH STEAK in Aspen, Colorado will be located at 515 E Hopkins Ave. and CATCH STEAK in Los Angeles, California will be located at 8490 Melrose Pl. For more information, visit www.catchrestaurants.com.
