Perry’s Steakhouse and Grill opens its first Virginia location at Short Pump Town Center Monday evening. Ahead of the opening of the Houston-based chain’s 21st location, the restaurant hosted a preview tasting and showcased its spacious and elegant new digs.
Located along West Broad Street, where the former Bar Louie restaurant stood, the 11,000-square-foot space in Short Pump Town Center will accommodate up to 350 guests.
“We’ve been waiting for the right moment to introduce Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille to Virginia and are excited to finally make our way into the greater Richmond area,” said Chris Perry, founder and owner of Perry’s Restaurants. “From our roots as a humble meat market, we’ve grown to focus not only on great food but also on creating a unique dining experience – and we are eager to welcome guests to our 7th location outside of Texas.”
Perry’s Richmond, designed in partnership with the renowned restaurant architect Aria Group Architects, Inc., will offer an expansive main dining room with views at every angle, from a glance at chef creations in the kitchen to glimpses of Perry’s Bar 79 through the towering wine wall. From the vibrant color palette to its exquisite use of glass, lighting, and other textures, every detail in the restaurant is selected to create an inviting environment to enjoy an intimate dinner, a business meeting, an elegant event….even Perry’s Famous Pork Chop Friday Lunch (the only day of the week the steakhouse opens for lunch).
The new location also includes four beautifully appointed private dining rooms ideal for corporate functions and family celebrations, serving parties from 8 up to 84. A dedicated sales manager will assist you with specially curated menus that can be tailored to any taste. Guests will also revel in the energy at Perry’s Bar 79, named after the year Perry’s was founded, and delight in sipping handcrafted cocktails at a beautiful island bar with glass walls that open to patio dining that seats approximately 45 guests.
Perry’s enjoys three key attributes that have become characteristic of the signature brand: the award-winning menu, the impeccable service, and the vibrantly elegant yet comfortable atmosphere. For over four decades, Perry’s has been skillfully carving up those three elements for its patrons to deliver an experience that is truly Rare and Well Done.
Perry’s has remained true to its roots with its butcher-fresh Prime USDA-Aged steaks, signature tableside carvings, flamed desserts, as well as its flagship menu item – a mouth-watering, seven-finger-high pork chop. Other fan favorites include signature steak additions as well as innovative seafood entrees created by Perry’s Master Development Chef Rick Moonen, a Celebrity Chef, a member of the American Culinary Hall of Fame, and the nation’s leading authority on sustainable seafood.
More than four decades ago, Perry’s first restaurant opened in Houston in 1979 as a modest meat market called Perry’s Butcher Shop and Deli. In 1986, Bob Perry’s son, Chris, persuaded his father to add dining tables, paving the way for an expansion and inspiring Chris Perry to open Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille in 1993. In addition to steakhouses in 11 markets throughout the United States, Perry’s Restaurants also includes Perry & Sons Market & Grille (the original butcher shop), CARVE American Grille, and VERDAD True Modern Mexican.
Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille is located at 11788 W. Broad St., Richmond, VA 23233. Dine-in dinner service will be available Monday through Thursday from 4 – 10 p.m., Friday from 10:30 a.m. – 10 p.m., Saturday from 4 – 10 p.m., bar open until 11 p.m. and Sunday from 4 – 9 p.m., bar open until 10 p.m. The full menu will be available for car-side to-go every day from 4 p.m. to close.
