Three Michelin star chef Corey Lee looks set to open a new restaurant in San Francisco’s Mission district according to a liquor licence application made in the area.
The SF Chronicle reports that the James Beard Award-winning chef of Benu has attached his name to an application made for the space previously occupied by Blowfish Sushi in the Mission District (2170 Bryant St.).
There are no details about what the venture will be but is hoped that Chef Lee is about to realise his long-held dream of opening a Korean Barbeque which he has been planning since as early as 2013.
The most recent restaurant opened by Lee is In Situ, at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, which recreates signature dishes from all over the world. Now it looks like Lee is looking to return to his roots and open a Korean Barbeque restaurant, although this has not been confirmed.
The name on the application is San Ho Won, however, there is no evidence to suggest that this could be the name of the new restaurant. It is thought that the new venture will open its doors in the middle of next year.
