JORDAN'S N.Y. STEAKHOUSE IS UPSCALE: NO JETS FANS ALLOWED?
Published November 25, 1997
In a licensing agreement with Manhattan-based Glazier Group that was signed yesterday, "Michael Jordan - The Steakhouse" will open in February in New York's Grand Central Station, according to Florence Fabricant of the N.Y. TIMES. Under terms of the deal, the restaurant will use Jordan's name and be run by Penny and Peter Glazier, who run the upscale, "The Monkey Bar," among others. The 150-seat steakhouse will occupy 7,000 square feet, with a 60-seat bar and a "small retail shop" selling mainly restaurant related items. The menu's "typical steakhouse main courses" will be priced "in the $20 range." Peter Glazier: "It's about fine dining and Michael Jordan the businessman. There will not be any sports memorabilia or photographs of Michael Jordan shooting baskets in the restaurant." The Glaziers "hope to become involved in more projects" with Jordan after the steakhouse opens (N.Y. TIMES, 11/25).
