Units of this upscale steak/seafood operation, which features Japanese beef, are clustered in the Midwest with two in Florida and one in Buffalo. The average tab is $50 to $65. A suburban Detroit life center is targeted for 2010. Plans call for one or two units every 12 to 18 months. A stylish new, lower-priced concept, Jekyll’s Kitchen, an American grill, could become a growth vehicle.
