STK, the West Hollywood steakhouse known for frequent celebrity sightings, plans to close and reopen at the W Los Angeles-Westwood hotel this summer.

The restaurant was a fixture on La Cienega Boulevard’s restaurant row for the last six years.

The One Group, the company that owns STK, will also take over food and beverage operations for the entire W Los Angeles-Westwood hotel.

“This move will allow us to provide an even more memorable experience in a sleek and energetic space, with additional offerings, including cocktails and bites at the W’s Living Room,” said the One Group’s CEO, Jonathan Segal.

The company also plans on opening STK locations in Milan, Italy; Chicago; Orlando, Fla.; and an STK Rebel in Denver.
