The brothers Voltaggio are teaming up for the first time to open a steakhouse at the MGM National Harbor casino.
Chefs Bryan and Michael Voltaggio are among the star-studded lineup of chefs that will lead the culinary program at the Prince George's County gaming venue. Other big names opening their own restaurants at the casino include James Beard Award winners Jose Andres and Marcus Samuelsson.
The Voltaggios' yet-to-be-named steakhouse will center around regional cuisine from the "Top Chef" competitors' home state of Maryland.
"Michael and I have always talked about collaborating. Despite having as many differences as we do similarities, we have been waiting to tell the story of the two of us as chefs through one menu," Bryan Voltaggio said in a statement. "It's fitting that we are bringing our first kitchen together in our home state of Maryland and we are excited to be a part of the evolution of the new Potomac waterfront."
Bryan Voltaggio has nine restaurants in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., including Aggio and Family Meal in Baltimore. Michael Voltaggio is based in Los Angeles with restaurants including Ink. and Ink.Sack.
Under the same roof at the casino resort, Andres is opening his first seafood restaurant, and Samuelsson's concept will serve comfort food in a festive atmosphere with live music.
The casino is expected to open in the second half of 2016.
