The kings of ampersands, first came the success of Bull & Bear and now the soon-to-open Prime & Provisions, the two guys behind the restaurants and upscale bars are ready to head south of the river and open up a steakhouse in the spring of 2015.
David Rekhson and Lucas Stoioff are the guys behind the epicenters of the evening's action downtown: Siena Tavern, Public House and Bull & Bear all located in the bustling River North district in Chicago. They are also the original owners and innovators who started the successful Chicago lounge, Stone Lotus, in their early 20's.
From what started as an upscale nightlife lounge, the two guys are now taking DineAmic Group to be competitors with some of the top restaurant groups in Chicago opening up two more properties in 2015 including a steakhouse called Prime & Provisions.
Following successful years with Stone Lotus, the guys decided it was time to go into the restaurant and bar business and open Bull & Bear. Utilizing Stoioff's creativity and law degree and Rekhson's operational, restaurant savvy mind, the opening of the high-end sports bar would be the beginning of the growth of their hospitality company DineAmic Group that operates and owns the venues.
Innovative and creative, Stoioff and Rekhson came up with the logistics behind the "pour your own table taps" concept at Bull & Bear and carried the popular idea to be included with the opening of Public House. This feature can now be found in restaurants throughout the city of Chicago, but keeps customers’ guessing, "What is next for DineAmic Group?" As of March 2013, Stoioff and Rekhson teamed up with Top Chef, fan favorite and the always charismatic, Fabio Viviani, to open up the Italian eatery hotspot, Siena Tavern.
Now, doubling the restaurant group in size within a year, the guys are expanding their roster and capitalizing on the dining scene taking it from the River North area and expanding it south of the river. Opening in the spring of 2015, Prime & Provisions will go back to old school steakhouses, but continuing to utilize their creativity and uniqueness.
