Luke Cusack, the man behind the upscale Pearl and Zen Rock nightclubs, has opened a new downtown restaurant called A Steak in the Neighborhood at 135 E. Congress St.

Cusack is also opening a place called Sapphire Lounge in the former Heart Five location at 61 E. Congress St. It is set to open New Year's Eve.

Cusack says A Steak in the Neighborhood works like this: The place uses nothing but prime and choice cuts for its beef dishes, and those cuts are prepared in a number of ways. You can have it as a straight-up steak, as beef stroganoff or as oriental beef and broccoli.

For those who like their beef between buns, they serve cheesesteaks and burgers, too. Also on the menu: A popular chicken marsala dish, salads, appetizers, breakfast burritos and other items. Hours: 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 3 a.m. Friday; and 5 p.m. to 3 a.m., Saturday.

Just down the block at Sapphire Lounge, Cusack is up to something completely different. He says dueling pianos will be featured downstairs while Las Vegas-style music and dancing go down upstairs. A “skydeck” area overlooking Congress Street offers outdoor seating on the top floor.

Cusack—who opened Zen Rock in the old Asylum location at 121 E. Congress St. earlier this year—was busy putting the finishing touches on Sapphire earlier this week.
