The New Knight's is Hopping

tables there too.

The Knight family already has a second location in Jackson, and they'd been scouting sites for another Ann Arbor restaurant for a while. At one point they considered the former Herc's Beef & Spirits on Washtenaw, but coming downtown was the right choice, if opening day is any indicator.

Dan and Susie Sutter are the husband-and-wife team deputized to run the campus location. They moved back to Ann Arbor after years working at Chicago's high-energy restaurants on Rush Street. Design firm Momus came up with the light-filled, white-walled seating areas dominated by a massive dark-wood bar at the center, which both does and doesn't look like Knight's Steakhouse.

The menu, too, is Knight's and not Knight's: "We've added some apps, like calamari and popcorn shrimp," Dan Sutter says. "Cowboy steak [a gargantuan rib cut] will be on the menu permanently. It sometimes shows up as a special at the Steakhouse." Mainly, the menu is shorter: the cream of the crop.
