The 12 ounce whiskey-marinated filet mignon with asparagus and baked potato at The Drover.

Take note: Whiskey steak will be back by spring. 

In a Facebook post, the Drover, which was damaged by a fire in December, said it plans to be open by April. 

"The Drover cleanup and restoration is well underway," the post reads. "We are shooting for an early April re-opening."

The restaurant will post an exact opening date when it is confirmed. 

The restaurant, near 72nd Street and Mercy Road, caught fire Dec. 24. Firefighters were able to bring the fire under control within about 20 minutes, but it caused significant damage, mostly in the kitchen area, where the fire started. 

The fire was accidental.
