David Spatafore's Blue Bridge Hospitality (Leroy’s Kitchen + Lounge, MooTime Creamery, Village Pizzeria, Lil’ Piggy’s Bar-B-Q, Coronado Coffee Company, soon-to-come Liberty Public Market) will continue its take over of Coronado when it opens the doors to the island’s only steakhouse, the collective’s sixth individual concept, Stake Chophouse & Bar, starting on Thursday, November 6 (not the 4th as reported by other publications). Helmed by Executive Chef Tim Kolanko, Stake will employ an all-star culinary and wine team and offer elegant cuts of meat grilled to perfection along with fresh seafood, farm-to-table dishes and sides, craft cocktails and a top notch wine and beer program.
Prominently situated in the heart of Coronado’s iconic village, the stunning 4,600 square-foot, second-story venue is located at 1309 Orange Avenue and will offer San Diegans and visitors alike a modern take on the classic chophouse of decades past. Allowing guests to indulge in a variety of offerings, versus more traditional, larger-style entrée portions, Chef Kolanko’s menu will include a number of share-friendly filets, chops and dry-aged prime steak, an expansive selection of ice cold shellfish & crudo, healthy salads and rustic, wood fire-roasted side dishes, in addition to a handful of freshly composed seafood entrées.
Starting November 6, Stake will be open on Sunday through Thursday from 4:30-10pm and Friday and Saturday from 4:30-11pm. For more information, visit stakechophouse.com, check out some of the food photos below and check out San Diego Magazine's photos of the space.
