BRENTWOOD -- Although The Streets of Brentwood has been a retail destination since its opening five years ago, it has more recently become a bona fide regional dining destination with the appearance of some new upscale eateries.
"They now have a critical mass of high-end dining options," said Alex Greenwood, Brentwood's economic development manager, of the shopping center on Sand Creek Road off Highway 4.
The latest buzz is surrounding the planned Jan. 27 opening of Black Angus Steakhouse, making it the 45th location nationwide and the ninth one in Northern California. According to Greenwood, the steakhouse will hire around 200 people and they have opened a hiring center in the interior of The Streets.
The new restaurant will be at the main entrance of The Streets off Sand Creek across from BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse.
"We are all excited to welcome Black Angus Steakhouse to the Brentwood community," Greenwood said. "It is exactly the kind of fun, high-quality restaurant that our residents are looking for, and it's a great fit for our regional lifestyle center."
The upcoming Brentwood restaurant opening coincides with the 50th anniversary of Black Angus. Once completed, the restaurant will span 7,900 square feet with 900 square feet of outdoor patio space for 52 guests.
"We are thrilled to open our new Brentwood location, bringing a classic and memorable steakhouse experience to the city of Brentwood," stated Black Angus President and Chief Executive Officer David Wolfgram in a news release.
"We have received tremendous support from the city since day one. We look forward to forging strong relationships with local residents and becoming a valued member of the community."
Brentwood's Black Angus will also feature a BullsEye Bar with free Wi-Fi, bar favorites, weekday specials, happy hour and several flat-screen televisions.
The steakhouse's menu is known for its prime rib, aged steaks, seafood and other signature entrees.
In December, The Streets also welcomed celebrity chef Guy Fieri's Johnny Garlic's near the AMC cinema. Open nightly, the restaurant operates six California locations with a diverse menu of options from elk, alligator and rabbit to gluten-free and vegetarian offerings. "All of the food uses are doing well," Greenwood noted.
