It's been two and a half years in the making, but Bovine Steakhouse is finally firing up filets and chops on Park Avenue.
After a significant renovation, JM Hospitality, the same group behind the 310 restaurants in Winter Park, Lake Eola and Lake Nona as well as Blu on the Avenue, have opened their high-end refuge of red meat in the old Park Plaza Gardens space in Winter Park.
Judging from this video posted by the Winter Park Chamber of Commerce, the steakhouse has a real Chicago steakhouse vibe, with brick walls, dark hues and a masculine mien.
No surprise, then, that steaks are procured from Chicago-based Linz Heritage Angus, a reputable outfit whose Black Angus cattle are renowned for their genetics.
Of note is the dry-aged ribeye on Bovine's menu. The meat is wet-aged for 30 days before being dry-aged for another 30. Cost for the 22-ouncer is $72.

Bovine is open from 4-10 p.m. daily and is adhering to social distancing guidelines while limiting capacity inside the restaurant to 50 percent.
