Marble the Steakhouse, an upscale chophouse-style restaurant, is planning a late summer opening in Kokomo’s historic downtown train depot. The restaurant, which will feature steaks, seafood, and chops, is the latest endeavor from Chef Blake Kinder, who currently owns and operates Cook McDoogal’s in downtown Kokomo.
“We hope to offer a unique experience at Marble in a tremendous setting,” said Kinder. “The train depot is a beautiful part of downtown. Kokomo enjoys and appreciates fine dining. Our concept will fit perfectly with the location and the look.”
In addition to fine dining, Marble will take advantage of its proximity to Tin Man Brewing Company and the Industrial Heritage Trail. Patrons at Tin Man will be able to order from a special gastropub-themed menu for delivery to the tap room. Marble will also offer the menu to those enjoying patio seating along the Industrial Heritage Trail.
“Anyone who has enjoyed Cook McDoogal’s knows what Blake is capable of doing,” said Mayor Greg Goodnight. “This new restaurant blends perfectly with the Depot District while offering something very unique.”
As a chef, Kinder has worked several places, including The Country Club-A New American Steakhouse at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas. He returned to Kokomo and opened Cook McDoogal’s in 2010. He is a graduate of the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts.
