Steve Fields is returning to Plano. The well-known restaurateur confirmed rumors that his latest venture will be at 4900 West Park Boulevard in the spot formerly occupied by Brick House Tavern + Tap. It is tentatively slated to open in September.

“I’m hoping by September when we open that most people will be vaccinated or feel comfortable eating out again,” he says.

Steve made his mark on the DFW dining scene in the 1980s as operator of the popular Truluck’s restaurants in Uptown Dallas and Addison. In 2005, he opened Steve Field’s Steak and Lobster Lounge in Plano at the northwest corner of Park Boulevard and Preston Road. For nearly 15 years it served as a date night hot spot and popular place to celebrate special occasions. It also achieved a loyal following of families who came for the steak, seafood and live piano music.

“Some kids were five when they first came,” he says. “They were 20 when we closed. We spent a lot of special occasions together.”

The old restaurant shuttered in September 2019 after his lease ended. That building was later demolished to make way for a new Velvet Taco.  At first, Steve said he planned to simply focus on his continued work with Truluck’s.

It didn’t take long for him to change course and begin looking for a new restaurant building. But the COVID-19 pandemic put those plans on hold. Then, when the Brick House location became available, he said the timing seemed right. He’s making his move with the help of three regular customers who put money together for the new venture.

Plans for the new restaurant are still in the early development phases. Steve says he is not ready to reveal a name or logo for his new place just yet. However, he says that diners can expect a vibe similar to his old Plano outpost. He adds that while the new spot may be a little more upscale, it will still be a neighborhood place where servers remember the names and faces of returning guests.

The new restaurant will initially serve dinner only. He hasn’t decided if he will later expand to lunch or weekend brunches. However, he is sure that he will serve steak and seafood.

“That’s the only thing I can do right,” he says with a laugh.

    I can’t wait. Nobody does the drawn butter for lobster tails or grilled asparagus like Steve Fields. And the caramel butter cream cake was to die for. Steaks were always well prepared as well. It was also reasonably priced as well.

    My FAVORITE restaurant is coming back to town? Glory Hallelujah! I was there the last day and I want to be there day 1.

    This is the best new yet and staying in the same area is exciting. We’ve missed you. The Brickhouse has horrible acoustics, I hope they can address that during their remodel. Welcome home!

    I am SO looking forward to his return. I always suggested to my friends that his restaurant was a ‘one of a kind’ experience. I added that the spouse would NEVER be disappointed. WELCOME BACK, STEVEN FIELDS!!! 🥰
