Beefsteak will open its first location in Ohio at Cleveland Clinic in March of 2018. The vegetable-centric, fast casual restaurant by world-renowned chef José Andrés will be accessible to Cleveland Clinic patients, visitors, staff, residents from neighboring areas, and the greater Cleveland community. This location will be operated in partnership with Bon Appetit Management and marks the sixth Beefsteak location since the restaurant debuted in the Washington, D.C., in early 2015.
Beefsteak launched its first location with Bon Appetit, a subsidiary of Compass Group USA, last summer at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA. As part of a natural progress of this strong relationship, José Andrés’ ThinkFoodGroup and Compass Group USA announced an exclusive three-year partnership to conceptualize, launch, and execute concepts across Compass Group’s venues. This joint venture combines the culinary creativity of Chef José Andrés with the operational expertise of Compass Group USA.
Beefsteak, created by chef José Andrés and led by executive chef Pat Peterson, is a new kind of fast casual concept where farm-fresh, market-driven vegetables take center stage to create hearty, vegetable-centric meals packed with flavor and nutrition. To fuel busy lifestyles and the growing desire to eat well, the affordable and accessible concept executes good food, fast. Having made its debut in early 2015, Beefsteak has five locations in Washington, D.C. Bethesda, Maryland and Philadelphia.
