San Diego-based Top Cheftestapant Brian Malarkey, who made it all the way to episode 14 in Season Three, will open a Searsucker, one of his many sartorially named restaurants, in Austin in June 2013. According to San Diego magazine, via Eater LA:
Fresh off the opening of Searsucker Scottsdale, the Enlightened Hospitality trio—chef Brian Malarkey, nightlife empresario James Brennan and designer Thomas Schoos—will continue their national expansion plans with Searsucker Austin set to open in June of next year.No word yet on the specific location for Searsucker, which self-describes as "New American Classic cuisine emphasizing approachable and unpretentious food that doesn't take itself too seriously." The "sea" spelling is supposed to be a reference to San Diego's coastal location ... which totally explains why Malarkey just opened one in beautiful oceanside Scottsdale, Arizona.
