Impending South End steakhouse Boston Chops tells The Improper Bostonian that it will open sometime after Valentine's Day. The restaurant, which hails from the owners of Deuxave and dbar, also shares some details about the space. For instance there will be a "glass-enclosed wine room" containing 2,000 bottles, and the restaurant has been designed with dialing down the noise in mind, which the article notes was a problem when this was the home of Banq and Ginger Park. Also, Kate Moore, formerly of L'Espalier, will head the bar program and serve as sommelier. When Boston Chops previously said that it would serve "underutilized cuts," examples included hangar steak and short ribs, but now chef Chris Coombs specifies that tongue, cheek, tripe and oxtail will also be served. Also, there will be a potato injected with poutine gravy.
