Lonely Pine Steakhouse is a Route 66-Inspired Eatery in Pleasant Ridge

Gorilla Cinema Presents — the hospitality masterminds behind bars Video Archive, Tokyo Kitty and Overlook Lodge — have expanded their empire from liquid to solid with the opening of Lonely Pine Steakhouse in Pleasant Ridge. The steakhouse, located next door to the Shining-themed Overlook Lodge, is "inspired by Midcentury Modern styling and the spirit of America's great landscapes" and features a display of available steaks in a glass case at the front of the restaurant. Owners Jacob Trevino and Otto Baum have tapped chef Jared Beckman and butcher Sam Mischenko to create a menu that features filets, ribeyes, strips and rare cuts, along with steakhouse sides, cocktails and a "bold" wine list. “Growing up in Texas, we would always visit counter service steakhouses," Trevino says in a release. "They were a place that the whole family could enjoy without much fuss, or breaking the bank. The older I get, the more I long to go back there. I can’t build a time machine so I’m building a restaurant.” Read a feature here.
