John Donatelli owns DeStefanoís Steakhouse with his wife, Eleanor and their son, Joseph. The name comes from his paternal grandmotherís maiden name, DeStefano. The restaurant resides in the building Johnís great grandparents have owned since 1919. DeStefano’s opened 9 years ago, because the family wanted to utilize the space. They had a few different ideas on what kind of restaurant to open, but Johnís father thought there werenít enough places to get a good steak in the area, so they decided a steakhouse was much needed.The menu at DeStefanoís if different from a typical steakhouse. They create elevated and unique flavors and serve ìa little bit of everything.î If youíre a fan of filets, John says theirs will be ìthe best filet youíve ever had.î Many customers come specifically for their veal chop, cut four inches thick and topped with mushrooms, sherry, bacon, and red onion. Their bacon is one of a kind, coated in their sweet and spicy glaze. Pair your dinner with a specialty cocktail from their full bar. DeStefanoís Steakhouse is open Tuesday-Sunday for dinner.
