In 2021, when news broke that Andreas Kotsifos, former executive chef at The Palm, would open a new steakhouse in Allen in 2022, expectations were high. But then, 2022 came and went and no restaurant opened. Now Allen residents and visitors can get the hype up again as Andreas Prime Steaks and Seafood is aiming to officially open on July 31, 2023.
Born in Greece, Kotsifos is known for his globally-inspired cuisine, and in his over 40-year experience in the industry he’s worked at restaurants all over the world and the U.S. — from Athens, Barcelona, Rome and Paris to Manhattan, Pennsylvania, Florida and Dallas.
According to The Dallas Morning News, Kotsifos might be ready to settle down in Texas since he signed a 10-year lease on the new Allen restaurant and, according to the restaurant’s social media, construction on a second Andreas Prime Steaks Seafood location in Waxahachie already began in March 2022.
