Harrah’s Cherokee Casino & Hotel today announced its partnership with Paula Deen Enterprises and the opening in late-2010 of Paula Deen’s Kitchen, the property’s first new restaurant to be introduced as part of a $633 million, three-year expansion program.
Created as a full-service, 404-seat restaurant, Paula Deen’s Kitchen at Harrah’s Cherokee will serve á la carte breakfast, lunch and dinner, and will be reminiscent of the décor and ambiance of her legendary home and kitchen in Savannah. The á la carte aspect of the restaurant is a first for Paula Deen in the Harrah’s brand, as her restaurant at Harrah’s Tunica Casino is a traditional buffet.
Adjacent to the restaurant will be a 1,800-square-foot Paula Deen retail shop offering Paula’s cookbooks, spices and food items, cookware, logo wear and gifts.
