It's already known that Art Smith is interested in bringing his Lyfe Kitchen here. But in an interview with Washingtonian, the Art & Soul chef shares some of his other ideas for the D.C. market: namely, airport restaurants and a ham bar. From the article:
I'm looking at doing some stuff at the airports—at Dulles and Reagan —and I'm also interested in a very successful concept we have in Atlanta. It's an artisanal ham bar that we're interested in bringing to the city. I'd like to see it in the Georgetown area. I like Washington a lot, and I think we could do a lot of expansion here.
Smith says the airport restaurants would be fast-casual and healthy, and that he's already started working on the concept. The restaurants could show up in airports in the next year or two.
