MEET THE CHEF
Meehan’s Chophouse BY DANIELLE VAN BEEST
If you haven’t treated yourself to an evening at Meehan’s Chophouse - you’re missing out.
Owner Tony Meehan and Executive Chef Derek Venutolo have successfully put Mansfield on the DFW culinary map with old school elegance and cosmopolitan fare. With a keen eye for excellence, this owner/chef partnership has expertly blended a rich, leathered (and king-sized wine glass) haven that attracts the who’s who for lunch that rivals Dallas’s Al Biernat’s, with the old-school- members-only feel of Fort Worth’s Del Frisco’s - but better.
Chef Venutolo, known for his long- standing success at Capital Grille, has created a menu that offers not only mouth-watering steaks that cut like butter, but imaginative options that go beyond the standard, fancy steakhouse rigmarole. In addition to the traditional wedge salad and baked potato options, Meehan’s offers baked brie, a “colossal lump crab cocktail” and (my personal favorite) a salmon filet with a mouth-watering olive and caper tapenade. “Tony and I wanted Meehan’s to be the next-level dining experience. We’ve put in the work to make this restaurant next-level and we’re proud of it. Why should people have to drive to Dallas or Fort Worth? The goal was to have the option here in Mansfield and now people are driving here from all over DFW.”
And he’s right. Diners are driving from all over—as far as Frisco, Waxahachie, and beyond to try Meehan’s menu, enjoy craft cocktails, and even Meehan’s very own wine label. Meehan’s Signature Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers rich, velvety berry tasting notes that make your taste buds— and the steak —sing.
Opening on December 15th, Meehan’s Chophouse hit the ground running and never stopped. Now a local staple of understated grandeur, Meehan’s offers the priceless bonus of Texan kindness. From the host stand to the serving staff to management to the chef himself - Tony Meehan has chosen an undeniably high caliber of people who work together to make Meehan’s the best it can be— today and for years to come.

I THINK THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF A BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP...
Dinner at Meehan’s Chophouse gives you an exclusive evening pass to the members- only Henry’s Cigar Lounge next door. Enjoy a nightcap and a cigar - or just take in the atmosphere. The lounge has been expertly designed to leave no smell of smoke on you as you exit. A great story to tell and none of the dry-cleaning bills to follow. Bogart would approve.
