Vintage Bar and Grill, an offshoot of Vintage Steakhouse in St. James, is expected to open late next month or in early September at the ever-fertile Jericho address that most recently housed Philippe.

The interior is being "totally redesigned," said owner Michael Cacaro.

Last month, Cacaro closed Fulton & Prime, the steak and seafood restaurant that had a six-year run on Jericho Turnpike in Syosset.  The adjoining Manero's Market butcher shop also closed.

The former Philippe, a free-standing building, earlier was home to Palio and, for many years, Capriccio.

Cacaro said the new Vintage would include steaks as well as hamburgers and pastas. He added that prices for main courses would be in the $16 to $35 range. Vintage in St. James is undergoing renovations, but the restaurant will continue as a steakhouse.
