Justin Weathers and Joe Monnich of Stove and Co. Restaurants announce Joey Chops, a new boutique steakhouse, will open this February at 245 Lancaster Ave, Malvern, PA 19355. The new concept will take over the former home of Stove and Tap Malvern.
Joey Chops will put a modern twist on the classic American steakhouse, with woodfired prime cuts, bright flavors, amazing seafood, new classic cocktails, and outstanding service. The 7,500 square foot restaurant and bar space will feature 135+ seats in the main dining room, private dining room, indoor bar and outdoor bar and lounge spaces. Renovations are currently underway, and will include all new furniture, the addition of tablecloths and new décor, a softening of the space, a new private dining room and event space, updates the the floorplan, and an extended selection of spirits and wines.
When opened, Joey Chops will join other Stove and Co. concepts that include DePaul’s Table: Modern Italian Steakhouse in Ardmore, Al Pastor in Exton, Stove and Tap in West Chester and Lansdale, Revival Pizza Pub in Exton Springs, and GBU (Good Bad and Ugly) in West Chester.
“Joey Chops will feature big and bold cuts, wines and cocktails in our modern twist on the classic American steakhouse,” said Weathers. “The Malvern area of the Main Line has become this amazing hotspot for suburban diners over the pandemic. There has been an increased demand for higher-end and elevated dining experiences. Since 2020, there has been a saturation of casual American restaurants and gastropubs. We wanted to fill the void and bring something special and more sophisticated to the area while keeping in line with our restaurant group’s mission and vision. We can’t wait to introduce Joey Chops to diners this winter. We are creating an experience that is perfect for every and any occasion – from the destination diner to the power luncher to locals looking for a great happy hour and bar scene.”
The menu will have a modern twist to a classic American style steakhouse favorites and be divided into categories such as starters, raw/ chilled/, salads/soups, hand cut steaks, entrees, and skillet sides. Expect generous portions, with a range of options from high end dry aged cuts to even approachable butcher cuts for the more price conscious. For higher end audiences look for a boutique steakhouse with high-end steaks and cuts with a well designed vibe and amazing service.
Stove and Co. has brought in Veteran General Manager George Simaan, previously with the Sullivan’s SteakHouse Group, to bring a polished yet unstuffy service standard to Joey Chops. They will focus on hospitality, steps of service and guest loyalty. They look forward to connecting with old and new customers.
The drink program will focus on new American cocktails, 20 wines by the glass, with 80% American and 20% international. Draft beer will include 12 selections with a focus on classic American beers – including a custom branded pilsner collaboration with Levante Brewery.
