The celebrity chef is opening his second Red Horse, an American steakhouse with Asian accents, at The Opus, Westchester.
Westchester loves its steakhouses. So, to start the new year off right, does it only make sense to celebrate with an exciting – shall we say juicy one? — Newcomer to White Plains.
With an anticipated opening date of January 2023, Red Horse will be Chef David Burke’s third venture in the Hudson Valley and his ninth since the pandemic began. This restaurant underscores the acclaimed chef’s intent to expand his brand, as this is his second steakhouse under the Red Horse name (the other is in Rumson, NJ).
Once Red Horse opens in Westchester it will be a welcome destination in the community for years to come. Announcing the restaurant’s upcoming arrival at the 914, Chef Burke also announced that he has signed an 11-year lease with Renaissance Hotel Partners. Great ready for years of delicious steak!
Burke is primarily focused on his establishments in his home state of New Jersey, where he has opened four restaurants as of March 2020. Its two New York locations are on the Upper East Side and in Saratoga.
“I am very excited about this as a launch pad for the expansion of the Red Horse by David Burke brand. And I look forward to getting involved in the Westchester Co. restaurant scene and more in the Hudson Valley’s,” shares Burke.
Red Horse will be constructed and operated at The Opus, Westchester, in downtown White Plains. The space was previously occupied by BLT Steak for 11 years and looks forward to seeing new faces join its kitchen.
Burke and his team will incorporate signature elements from his 15 restaurants as well as his growing Red Horse brand.
To give restaurant-goers a little taste of the space, there will be a massive pink Himalayan salt wall separating the open-plan kitchen from the dining room, dazzling light fixtures and exquisite artwork, some from Burke’s own eclectic collection. Guests can expect to be greeted not only by the host, but also by a life-size red horse sculpture that Burke commissioned.
As for food, the menu will read much like the original Red Horse, with an emphasis on prime dry-aged beef. Also available to order is a range of Burke’s signatures such as popovers, “clothesline” bacon, lobster dumplings, salmon pastrami, “angry” lobster and pork chops with Sandy Hook Clams Casino.
Excited to try Red Horse? With an arrival date just around the corner, the restaurant will be a welcome addition to the thriving White Plains dining scene. Until then, you can catch up on the latest food news from Westchester County here.
