Mastro’s founders run this bi-level steak 48 in River North that serves premium meats and high-end American cuisine in a glass-walled kitchen. A sprawling, neutral-hued Steak48 space is divided by multiple seating areas. There are two bars, two fireplaces, and a seasonal patio.


Steak 48 offers the best steaks and top-quality seafood in a relaxed and lively setting. We offer a wide variety of dishes to satisfy every taste, including USDA prime steaks, delicious seafood, and shellfish, along with creative and classically-inspired side dishes and appetizers.

Our in-house butcher shop is kept at 40 degrees. Our 1800-degree broiler is used to cook 28-day-old, wet-aged steaks that are custom-cut by master butchers. Our beef is mainly from Midwestern farms in Michigan, Wisconsin and premium Wagyu beef from the Mishima Reserve.

In our glass-enclosed, open kitchen, you can see our raw bar. On ice, you can get fresh East and West Coast oysters, Maine lobster, Alaskan King crab, and quality colossal shrimp. A wide variety of side dishes are also available, including Alaskan King Crab and Rock Shrimp Mac & cheese, Asparagus Fries, and our signature potatoes.

We are thrilled to be part of Houston’s continued growth and development. We will be embracing the opportunity to get to know our neighbors, and inviting the community to enjoy Steak 48. Oliver Badgio, Sr. Vice President Prime Steak Concepts

The Mastro brothers’ first venture into the restaurant business was River Oaks Steakhouse. Steak 48 was inspired by the Steak 44 in Phoenix. Steak 48, which is actually their Phoenix location, was inspired by their roots. It pays tribute to Arizona’s 48th entry into Union. They have also operated other successful restaurants, including Mastro’s Steakhouse, Mastro’s Ocean Club, and they were sold in 2007.

Prime Steak Concepts, the Mastro owners, has given Steak 48’s culinary operations to Executive Chef Jeff Taylor. Chef Taylor has almost 20 years experience in the culinary world and has been working in Texas since 2000. Steak 48 is Chef Taylor’s partner. They strive to provide the finest steaks in Houston, and add a regional flair to the menu.

Before any ingredient is allowed to Steak 48, it must meet Chef Taylor’s strict standards. Responsible farms are where we source our prime beef. Our restaurant serves steaks that have been wet aged 28 days and then are hand-cut by our master butcher.

Every steak is hand-cut in our restaurant, and then delivered to the kitchen. Houston’s only butcher shop allows us to cut steaks exactly as you order.

We also take great care in choosing where our seafood and fish comes from. We only trust sustainable sources. Innovative side dishes are served alongside our prime-grade steaks and seafood entrees. The raw bar features fresh oysters from both the coasts, Alaskan King crab, and Maine lobster.

Side dishes include American classics as well as our innovative creations. The Corn Creme Brulee and Double Baked Truffle Potato are popular sides. To whet your appetite, we also offer delicious appetizers such as Fried Deviled Eggs or Fresh Burrata. Our decadent dessert menu will tempt you after the main course.
