Naples, FL: (May 7, 2021) . . . Culinary Concepts founder Skip Quillen announced today Chops City Grill steakhouse in Bonita Springs will close for a $1.0 MM renovation on Sunday, May 23rd, 2021. The temporary closure kicks off phase one of a complete remodeling program which will enhance the 20-year-old steakhouse’s elegance and sterling reputation as the premier steakhouse in Southwest Florida.

“Chops has such a passionate, loyal fan base and we are excited to begin this first phase of enhancing both the structure and design of our classic American steakhouse,” says Quillen. “With the addition of Italian chandeliers, dark velvet fabric and deep-toned woods, the new decor Chops décor will be nothing less than spectacular,” he promises. “We take pride in being ranked as a top steakhouse in Southwest Florida. This renovation plan is in line with our company wide commitment to providing exceptional guest service and memorable dining experiences.”
Centrally located midway between Bonita and Estero nearby the Coconut Point Mall, the 300-seat upscale steakhouse opened in 2001 at 8200 Health Center Boulevard with both indoor and al fresco dining, specializing in-house dry-aged roasted prime rib, American Prime, Japanese and Australian wagyu strip, T-bone and rib eye steaks and fresh seafood choices matched with creative sides and original sauces. The steakhouse’s legendary antique bar offers more than 100 whiskey selections, a 300+ bottle wine list, 100s of creative craft cocktails and non-alcoholic selections.
Although Chops’ design will change, Quillen says customers will still enjoy the lowest priced wagyu beef in the country, dry-aged prime rib and an award-winning menu and staff when the steakhouse reopens, adding that the wine list, signature cocktails and dinner menu will also be enhanced.
“Make no doubt about it,” Quillen says, “Chops City Grill in Bonita will reopen as an amazing restaurant!”
