Eddie V's Prime Seafood has scheduled Aug. 18 as the opening date for its new location in Plano. Known for its seafood, cocktails and hand-carved steaks from its in-house butcher, the restaurant will offer a luxurious fine dining experience, according to a release from the business.

The steak and seafood restaurant chain, which started in Austin, is located at 5300 SH 121 on the southwest corner of the intersection where Preston Road meets the Sam Rayburn Tollway frontage road. The release states the restaurant's "culinary style is classic American with a touch of modern Asian." Eddie V's signature items include a Chilean sea bass steamed Hong Kong-style, Parmesan sole and crab fried rice as well as fresh-baked desserts such as the Bananas Foster Butter Cake flambéed tableside and served with butter pecan ice cream.

The eatery's The V Lounge will feature a stage for performances by musicians on select nights. Guests can indulge in the Cocktails With Attitude menu, which features drinks such as the Smoked Old Fashioned that is torched tableside to capture the smoke in a glass and the Hope Diamond, which changes color from deep blue to magenta. The restaurant’s award-winning wine list, which has been recognized by Wine Spectator, will have more than 300 wines. Featured cocktails will include the Smoked Old Fashioned and the Hope Diamond.

The 10,701-square-foot restaurant, which features four private dining rooms, will be open seven days a week and will employ 75 people. Reservations are recommended but not required, according to the release.

Managing Partner Leslie Barkley, who previously was the manager at Eddie V’s in Houston, brings 14 years of industry experience to her new role with the Plano location, the release states. 469-268-3758. www.eddiev.com/plano
