If you’ve ever wanted to cook John Tesar’s incredible steak and burger recipes at home, you finally can. Knife Butcher has finally opened in The Shops at Willow Bend.

Knife Butcher is one of Tesar’s three concepts to open in The Shops at Willow Bend, including his steakhouse, Knife, which had previously been a hit in Dallas, as well as Knife Burger. With Knife Butcher, the “Top Chef” alumnus hopes to encourage lovers of his craft to channel the confidence to cook high quality meals at home.

“I’m passionate about empowering the at-home chef with the tools they need to recreate Knife-quality meals in their own kitchen,” said Tesar in a statement. “With my cookbook, KNIFE: Texas Steakhouse Meals at Home, I shared tons of recipes and techniques for working with meat, and now I’m taking it to the next level by giving people access to the very same steaks that are served at Knife.”
