Kevin Durant Opens Restaurant in Oklahoma City, Hopes ‘Kd’s Southern Cuisine’ Feels ‘Like Home’

Kevin DurantMiles away from his hometown of Washington, D.C., Kevin Durant has to put in some effort to get a home-cooked meal. So he’s doing what any person rich enough would do in such a situation: He’s opening his own restaurant.

Kd’s Southern Cuisine opened in the lower Bricktown section of Oklahoma City, the Miami Herald reports, featuring southern-style food like fried catfish, barbecued pork ribs and collard greens. Durant said in a news release that he hopes the cuisine and atmosphere “feels like home” — a very, very expensive home, apparently.

Although the regular menu will feature items ranging from $10 to $25, the restaurant reportedly will also feature a “Baller Menu” with higher priced items, like a $52 steak. Kd’s will also feature a two-story wine room and a private area with space for a DJ, according to the Herald. You know, just like home.

Durant won’t be the first famous athlete to have a restaurant in OKC. Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, an Oklahoma City native, opened Wes Welker’s Sports Bar & Grill there in July.
