Venegas Prime Filet sits like a birthday gift -- wrapped up and waiting to be opened.
The steakhouse announced by the owner of Ranazul to replace oZ Chophouse in Maple Lawn still says on the door that it will open in November. On Sunday, the windows were still covered in paper, but the name -- first announced in September -- is posted on temporary signs above the doors.
Opening a restaurant is hard work, so I don't always expect them to open on time. But I'm looking forward to seeing Venegas Prime Filet, and I know that the new Azul 17 in Columbia had a soft open weeks ahead of the public announcement. Has anyone heard talk about when the grills will fire up in Fulton?
