Brooks Brothers, heretofore content with selling men's suiting and upper crust style for women and children at over 300 locations nationwide, is opening a large steakhouse, the New York Post reports.
The new restaurant is dubbed Makers and Merchants and, according to a brand spokesperson, the first location is slated to open in summer 2014 at 11 E. 44th Street in New York City, around the corner from the brand's flagship store. Because goodness knows, the appetite that a good ol' American suit fitting rustles up can really only be quenched with meat. The Post notes that it will act as a "prototype" for a national chain.
