The Scoop: Twisted Tree to open in Sunset Hills


There will once again be a dining option at the corner of Lindbergh Boulevard and Watson Road when Twisted Tree Steakhouse opens July 14 in Sunset Hills. As reported by Feast, Twisted Tree will be located at 10701 Watson Road, the space was most recently home to Mile 277 Tap and Grill.


The Syberg family, which also owns the eponymous restaurant group, owns Twisted Tree and brought on Mike Abbadessa of the former Pear Tree Restaurant to help with menu development and opening. “We’ve all been in the business for a long time,” said Syberg's marketing director Tracy Stamper. “The Pear Tree had a great menu, and we have seven restaurants. We’re excited."


Stamper said Twisted Tree will aim to create a rustic, comfortable steakhouse featuring traditional cuts like prime rib, filet mignon and rib-eye. A signature item from Pear Tree, the battered, fried lobster tail, will be on the Twisted Tree menu, as well.


The 9,100-square-foot restaurant holds 200 seats inside with an additional 50 seats on a patio. When it opens, Twisted Tree will initially serve dinner from 4:30 to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, with plans to add lunch service in August.
