EATERWIRE: Toby’s Public House opens in Nolita tonight; $50 Steak in NYC

STEAKWIRE Better start saving up for your next steak dinner now. New York steakhouses may start charging over $50 for their steaks soon, reports Crain’s. The cost of beef is on the rise thanks to an increased demand for US beef abroad and a dwindling number of available cows. Some places have already raised their prices to $50 or $60, but others, like The Palm, worry that hitting the big 5-0 may scare away customers. [Crain’s]

NOLITA Grub Street notes that the Nolita outpost of Brooklyn bar/pizzeria Toby’s Public House is opening tonight for dinner with lunch service to start in April. Chef Nicola Bertolotti has created a few new items for the Manhattan menu including carpaccio pizza and rosticcera braciolette. They’re still waiting to get their hands on a liquor license, but will be serving up Mocktails in the meantime. [GS]

UPPER WEST SIDE — Things got rowdy on the UWS last week when a group of restaurant owners held a rally to protest the NYPD’s closure of Papasito’s 105th Street location. The restaurant was shut down after months of noise complaints and concerns about alcohol being served to minors, but the Northern Manhattan Restaurant and Lounge Association feels like the NYPD acted unfairly.

FOOD TV — Move over, Paula Deen, there’s gonna be a new southern belle in front of Food Network’s cameras come April. Zagat reports that country star Trisha Yearwood is getting her own show. On each of the six episodes, Mrs. Garth Brooks (who apparently has two cookbooks to her name) will share her favorite recipes, tell stories about her family, and charm us with a little southern hospitality.
