Left Bank hires architect for new steakhouse

Restaurant may open on Santa Cruz Avenue in Menlo Park in 2012

The new year will welcome a new Left Bank steakhouse at 898 Santa Cruz Ave. in downtown Menlo Park, the former location of Marche restaurant at the corner of University Drive. According to spokesman Tom Walton, the restaurant plans to debut in the first quarter of 2012.

Designed by architect Mark Stevens of Architecture & Light, the restaurant will be Left Bank's second in Menlo Park, and is based on a similar establishment on San Jose's Santana Row.

Roland Passot, proprietor and chief culinary officer of Left Bank Brasserie, is leading the project.

Signature dishes may include a 24-ounce steak with a choice of sauces, and macaroni and cheese spiced with truffles.

The exact date for the grand opening of LB Steak will be determined by how long it takes to get through Menlo Park's permitting process, Mr. Walton said.

It's about time. It will be nice not having to leave my neighborhood to have a nice meal.

Looking forward to a great restaurant and I hope that Menlo Park permit process moves quickly and does everything possible to make Left Bank Steak happen ASAP. I as a voter will be watching
