New York-based The ONE Group Hospitality Inc. plans to open a new location of its upscale STK Rebel restaurant in 2016 at downtown’s Andaz San Diego hotel.
Hotel and ONE Group officials said the “cutting-edge” STK Rebel will occupy 4,200 square feet of indoor and outdoor space at Andaz, located at 600 F St. in the Gaslamp Quarter. It will be the first STK Rebel in San Diego and the fourth in the U.S., following previously announced openings in Denver, Miami and Austin.
Operators said STK Rebel is a “more accessibly priced” extension of the hospitality company’s flagship STK chain of high-end steakhouse restaurants, which has 11 locations in cities including New York, Las Vegas, London and Milan.
The 159-room Andaz San Diego is a boutique hotel operated by an affiliate of Hyatt Hotels and currently owned by Xenia Hotels & Resorts Inc. The six-story building, dating back to 1914 and once known as the Maryland Hotel, became The Ivy in 2007 and was converted in 2010 to Hyatt’s Andaz brand.
