The old Conor O’Neill’s in Boulder underwent a massive makeover and reopened over the weekend as Steakhouse 316, a new white-tablecloth dinner spot. Started in Aspen, the steakhouse serves prime cuts ($36 to $110) in cast-iron pans, paired with Maine lobster tails, topped in blue cheese bone marrow butter sauce. See also more steak combinations plus seafood towers, table-side Caesar salad, and a Manhattan cocktail list.
Husband-and-wife owners Craig and Samantha Cordts Pearce operate the original Steakhouse 316 out of a film noir-decorated former miner’s cabin in Aspen. They also run the Monarch, CP Burger, and Wild Fig, which make up their CP Restaurant Group. This latest space seats 120 in a dining room covered in black lacquered walls and red tufted leather. The 13th Street building, which housed Conor O’Neill’s for 17 years and James Pub and Grill for two decades before that, dates back to the early 1900s.
Anyone wishing to reminisce while checking out the new space and people-watching should head straight to the bar for a separate menu featuring shrimp cocktail, steak and fries, and a stirred vodka martini.
Status: Steakhouse 316 is now open daily from 5 to 10 p.m. for dinner at 1922 13th Street in Boulder. Reservations can be made at (720) 729-1922, and more information can be found on the website.
