Yippee-ai-yo: Black Angus coming to South Street

This steakhouse/jazz club has an "urban cowboy" theme.

Yippee-ai-yo: Black Angus coming to South Street


The east end of South Street is about to get a taste of the Old West.

Black Angus, positioning itself as a modest-priced steakhouse-cum-jazz club, is awaiting its liquor license to open at 117-119 South St., the ornately high-ceilinged former home of Tori's Brickhouse and Mallorca. So mid-February, maybe?

Manager Paul Goss explains that owner Lawrence Gilliam has horses and likes the western thang, hence a decor based on cowboy lore. There's also an adjacent wine bar, and in the back, another nod to Gilliam's interests: a full-size club with stage for jazz shows.

Menu is 99 percent done, though the chef has not been appointed.

Entrees will range from an $8.99 one-third-pound burger to $27.99 for a 24-ounce porterhouse.

Signature will be the surf and turf ($22.99): a 12-ounce rib eye served with six garlic fried or peeled shrimp.
