Some big names will be opening restaurants at the MGM Casino slated to open at National Harbor next year.

Restaurants from Bryan and Michael Voltaggio, José Andrés and Marcus Samuelsson will all open at the Prince George's County development, according to The Washington Post.

The Voltaggios will collaborate on a steakhouse for the casino, while Andrés will focus on seafood. Marcus, by Marcus Samuelsson, will be the celebrity chef's first local restaurant: details are limited, but he's thinking shellfish, among other items.

The Voltaggios were a suspected scenario for the project, as they were attached to an initial bid for the development. MGM National Harbor is slated to open in the second half of next year.

UPDATE: A press release reveals a couple more details about the upcoming restaurants. Andrés' restaurant will serve a variety of dining options, including a tempura bar, sushi bar and cocktail bar, as well as interactive kitchen stations. Marcus will serve comfort food like fried chicken, and have multiple bars and a big grill. The Voltaggios' restaurant, their first collaboration, will focus on regional Maryland specialties along with the steak.
