Tom Jastrom, a partner in the new restaurant, said he expects to close July 26 on the former Stonecrest Southern Steakhouse location, which shut its doors in July 2010.
“We had been looking for a while over there,” Jastrom said.
The 5,000-square-foot restaurant at 601 N. Belair Road needs minor renovations and could be open within a month or two of the purchase date, Jastrom said.
“It’s mostly just cosmetic,” he said of the work needed on the building.
As many as 40 to 50 employees could work at the new TBonz Steakhouse.
Stonecrest opened in October 2007 with hopes of becoming a chain of franchise steakhouses.
