Charleston's to replace Legacy Grill in Oklahoma City's Lower Bricktown
Say goodbye to a legacy and hello to Charleston's as the Hal Smith Group ends a new concept attempted in Lower Bricktown when they quickly had to end a restaurant's affiliation with former Thunder star Kevin Durant.
Legacy Grill opened last September in the space that previously home to KD's southern eatery. The restaurant, which drew long lines while Durant was a beloved adopted son, quickly lost its popularity when Durant on July Fourth of last year shocked local fans and joined the rival Golden State Warriors.
Nathan Couch, managing partner at the restaurant, confirmed the switch to one of the most popular of the Hal Smith restaurant concepts will open at 224 Johnny Bench Drive along the Bricktown Canal by September.
“We had so many requests for a Charleston's downtown,” Couch said. “We already had a location. With the popularity of that brand we thought we'd go with the summer to make the change. We're trying to change as fast as possible because we have so many guests who already come down for Legacy Grill.”
Couch said the end of Legacy Grill was more driven by the popularity of Charleston's rather than the performance of the existing restaurant.
