Siena Tuscan Steakhouse opens Friday

Check out the awesome ice balls used at Siena Tuscan Steakhouse’s bar.

They’d originally hoped for a New Year’s Day opening. But managers of Siena Tuscan Steakhouse, the new restaurant inside the Ambassador Hotel at 104 S. Broadway, say it won’t open until dinnertime on Friday.

Its first time to be open to the public and serving from the menu will be Friday evening, when it will open for dinner. (There’s a big party in the hotel tonight, but the restaurant won’t be open in its usual capacity.)

The restaurant is now taking reservations. Starting on Saturday, the restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. It also will join the big Sunday brunch fray.

I wrote a post a few weeks ago outlining what would be on the menu, but I did not mention this very interesting ice ball making device the restaurant has. These balls are supposed to to be superior to cubes for chilling your whiskey and other drinks.

Here’s the restaurant’s new Facebook page, which features food shots, info and more. For reservations, call 316-239-7100.
