ST. CHARLES – A restaurant on the city's east side has turned its focus to steak and other types of meat.
North Avenue Charhouse, 3755 E. Main St. in St. Charles, offers a variety of cuts as well as seafood, sandwiches and more. Among the most popular fare are the filet mignon, Mediterranean-style salmon and New York steak with lobster or other seafood.
"You can pretty much find anything you need on our menu," said Chris Lambropoulos, the restaurant's manger. "We don't leave anybody behind."
After a brief stint as Limani Port of Greece Restaurant, the Lambropoulos family reopened as a charhouse the day after Thanksgiving 2013. The theme was changed because there doesn't seem to be many restaurants in the area that concentrate primarily on meat, Lambropoulos said.
Lambropoulos is hopeful that residents will return more frequently to the restaurant because of the diverse amount of meats on the menu. One day someone can have steak, and the next day just a burger, he said.
Prime rib is served on Fridays and Saturdays, and the menu also includes pasta, kabobs, salads, soups and a full bar.
The restaurant will have some exterior renovations later this year, but the inside has remained mostly the same with dark cherry wood tables and flooring.
"It's a beautiful building," Lambropoulos said.
