What's Union Trust going to look like?

A peek at a rendering of Union Trust, one of three new steakhouses joining the fray this fall.

What's Union Trust going to look like?


Union Trust is one of three downtown steakhouses under construction in onetime bank buildings for fall openings. Designed by DAS Architects, UT will take advantage of the high ceilings in the former Jack Kellmer jewelers at 717 Chestnut St.

UT, like Del Frisco's Double Eagle (15th and Chestnut Streets), installed a mezzanine to break up the enormous room.

Timetable is mid-October. Del Frisco's Double Eagle is saying mid-November, and Stephen Starr's Butcher & Singer at 15th and Walnut Streets (the old Striped Bass) is up for the third week in November.
