David: Steakhouse & Lounge
Silvera's Steakhouse & Lounge
Silvera's Steakhouse & Lounge is an upcoming restaurant in Main Street, and is owned by David Silveria.
Set to open in August 2006 with partners Greg Carpenter and Shane Hollinger -- Tuna Town's general manager and executive chef, respectively -- the new 4,000-square-foot restaurant will feature high-backed booths and 1950s-era furnishings. The bar will have windows opening onto the patio and lounge, and vintage photographs of Huntington Beach on the walls.
"I didn't want to stop with a sushi bar," Silveria said. "There wasn't a high-end steak place here, so it seemed like a perfect match to start one."
The second I in David's name is silent, so he decided to drop it entirely when christening his new business venture.
The restaurant will be at Pacific Coast Highway and Main Street, above the HSS Girls shop in the spot formerly occupied by Pancho Villa's Grillm, and will sell corn-fed beef, dry-aged for three to four weeks and broiled at 1600 degrees, Hollinger said. The vegetables will be organic.
"We want to bring the healthful way of eating to Silvera's Steakhouse," said Carpenter, who worked as a chef before moving into a managerial role at Tuna Town.
"You can have the biggest place and the funnest place, but if you don't serve quality food, you are not going to be getting people in the door," he added.
The restaurant will offer more than 50 wines, as well as a wide selection of cocktails. The lounge area will feature live entertainment and dancing after dinner.
