Chef’s Kitchen opens in Beaverdale


Steve Little, whose Winston’s Pub & Grille Restaurant on the skywalk level of 601 Locust St. has been a popular spot for lunch and evening cocktails for years, is attempting to repeat his magic in Beaverdale in a new restaurant called Chef’s Corner Kitchen.

The restaurant opened last week at the corner of 41st Street and Beaverdale Avenue in the former location of Amici’s Restaurant and Bar, which recently closed. The building is owned by Bill Moyer, who has agreed to lease the space to Little, he said.

Chef’s Corner offers pizza, sandwiches and four types of salads, including Greek, Caesar and a house special called the “garbage” that includes “salami, turkey, artichokes, peppers, shrimp and mozzarella cheese on that bad boy,” said Little, who goes by the nickname “Ben.”

The restaurant offers nine sandwiches, including a French dip and a hamburger called the “Benny Burger” that is made with one pound of ground beef that’s been stuffed with onions and Colby cheese.

Little said that in the eight years he has been running Winston’s, the restaurant has become best known for soups and sandwiches. He decided to open the new location because he lived nearby and he “thought it was a nice place,” he said.

Chef’s Corner can seat up to 40 people and will be open from 4 to 10 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. For dinner, the restaurant will serve entrees featuring sirloin marinated in Jack Daniel’s whiskey, baked salmon and chicken cordon bleu.

Chef’s Corner has eight employees.
