Opened in November, NAO Steakhouse (an acronym for "new and old") comes from restaurant moguls Charles Khabouth and Hanif Harji of Ink Entertainment. Spread over 4,032 square feet with two floors and a vast patio, the Yorkville restaurant combines steak house fare with Asian flavors. The space features handcrafted Italian leather banquettes, African oak flooring, custom steak knives designed by blacksmith Fredrick Scalen, and marble and granite countertops. It seats 54 on the ground floor, 68 on the second floor, and 75 on the patio.
