Not Manny's. The new restaurant is not a chain. Independently owned.

The word is it will be run by the FMK Group ( Belle Glade, Bluefin, Bonifay, etc.) If they do it as well as Bluefin, it will be a winner.

My wishes: USDA Prime meats, New Zealand Lamb Chops, great sides and a selection of sauces on the side ( bearnaise, chimichurri, peppercorn, you get the idea!). Oh, and a proper Vodka martini with blue cheese stuffed olives.

The Chop House is a chain (if it's the same Chop House, 12 locations from Ohio to Georgia) and isn't surprising that FMK would pick up the franchise.....if true. They seem successful with Blue Fin which is an upgrade to most restaurants here so taking on an in TV upgrade steakhouse south of Longhorn and Texas Roadhouse is reasonable. Only hope they find a way to soften the sound in that place.

This restaurant will not be part of a chain. It is an independent restaurant. It will be higher quality than TR and Longhorn. The restaurant is a total remodel.

A top line steakhouse is usually a quieter atmosphere. Morton's is a good example. Actually, let's hope for one.

Fred K passed on this location before Guy Fieris. The kitchen was too small. Maybe he has a different idea in mind, lower volume, high end. Time will tell.

Fred knows what he is doing. I am betting that the new restaurant will be great!

You have said that SIX times. How do you know? Where did you get the information?

S/he might know something from someone and isn't allowed to divulge the source. Our dear departed Bonnie used to do that all the time. She knew stuff but could only say so much. It's not unusual, IMO.
