A new steakhouse is opening in downtown Minneapolis in former Barnes & Noble space

The Denver-based steakhouse chain will arrive in 2019.

The space formerly occupied by Barnes & Noble on Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis is going to be filled with a new steakhouse. 

Golub & Co., the owner of the RSM Plaza building, announced that Denver-based 801 Restaurant Group is opening 801 Chophouse in the 11,180-square-foot space in fall 2019. 

“We’re in the midst of a transformation of RSM Plaza to create the kind of highly upgraded office community that today’s businesses want,” Golub & Co. Senior Vice President Stephen Sise said in a press release. 

801 Chophouse began as a family-owned steakhouse in Des Moines, Iowa in 1993 and has since expanded with locations in five other American cities: Kansas City, Leawood (Kansas), Omaha, St. Louis, and Denver. 

The restaurant is described as a model of classic New York steakhouses from the 1920s, offering a menu focused on USDA prime steaks and fresh fish and crustaceans. It also prides itself in serving award-winning wines and a list of small batch bourbons and single malt scotches. 

Here are steak prices from the Des Moines location's menu

  • Roast prime rib: $46 or $57 (801 cut)
  • New York strip: $46 for 12 oz. or $57 for 16 oz. 
  • Bone-in Delmonico: $64 for 24 oz. 
  • Filet mignon: $46 for 8 oz. or $57 for 12 oz. 
  • Ribeye: $49 for 16 oz. ($2 more for Tuscan style)
  • Porterhouse: $64 for 24 oz. 

Side dishes run in the $9-$18 range. Appetizers cost $12-$19. 

According to Finance & Commerce, Golub & Co. has renovated RSM Plaza with a new fitness center and conference center, with work being done to enhance skyway connections to the building. 

Barnes & Noble closed its Nicollet Mall location in April 2017.
