Edward Lee, the chef behind such restaurants as 610 Magnolia and MilkWood in Kentucky, is bringing his talents to National Harbor.
Tim Carman reports the chef will open Succotash at the Maryland development this spring (ideally in May). They'll have 25 different bourbons and Southern staples like fried chicken and chess pie.
This is Lee's first restaurant outside Louisville. It's a big get for both the development and Prince George's County, which have both struggled to snag destination restaurants.
UPDATE: According to a press release, Lee's restaurant will be designed by Michael Reginbogin and Jason Berry, co-founders of KNEAD Hospitality + Design. The architecture of the 200 seat restaurant (which will be right by the Gaylord) will draw on influences from architecture in Savannah, New Orleans, rural Mississippi and Kentucky.
