Dallas chef John Tesar has announced he'll be opening a modern steakhouse called Knife in the Hotel Palomar, set to open in the Spring of 2014. Tesar, who already owns a seafood restaurant in Dallas called Spoon, tells Eater Dallas he decided to open a steakhouse because "I don't care what anyone says...75 percent of the male population out there still goes home and wants a piece of red meat on the plate at night in the state of Texas." Knife will focus on traditional cuts as well as more creative meat dishes, with an eye toward Texas ranchers: "Go find a Texas steakhouse that serves real Texas steaks. You can't find it."
