Durant expands reach into restaurant business | Business
A well-known face at the Chesapeake Arena will be expanding his horizons when he opens a restaurant in lower Bricktown next year.
Kevin Durant announced that he will be opening an upscale southern cuisine restaurant, entitled KD's, that features all of his favorite foods.
Guests will be able to choose from items such as chicken satay, popcorn lobster, honey-dipped fried chicken, center cut pork chops, blackened catfish stuffed with crab meat, slow-smoked barbecue ribs and other comfort foods.
“I am very excited to be opening my first restaurant in Lower Bricktown,” Durant said. “I look forward to spending a lot of time there with my fans and friends, and enjoying great food and live music. I want customers not only to enjoy incredible food at my restaurant, but to always gather for a great experience.”
KD's will feature a walk-around bar and live music played by local and nationally known musicians.
It will be located in between Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill and Harkins Bricktown 16 movie theatre.
Officials say it will be built along the Bricktown Canal and will include an outdoor patio and a hookah room.
“This new restaurant will undoubtedly be a hotspot for the Oklahoma City community, Thunder fans and tourists alike,” said Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett. “We are lucky to have a professional athlete like Kevin Durant who is helping make Oklahoma City a great place to live, work and have fun.”
KD's is being developed by Hal Smith Restaurant Group and Randy Hogan in partnership with K. Durant Restaurant Group, LLC.
