This concept, developed by early Subway franchisee and wine aficionado Bill Humphries, sets itself apart from other steakhouses by actively marketing to women; females account for 45 percent of its customers. It courts them by opening up the space with light woods and vibrant colors, setting the table with fine china and offering a value-priced wine list with a by-the-glass selection. The female-friendly menu goes beyond the usual steak and seafood with entrees such as Pecan Crusted Trout and Beef Short Rib Stroganoff.
