SECO Development announced last week that Chinese restaurant, Black Rooster, is coming to Southport in September.

Black Rooster is a fine dining restaurant that is focused on the use of fresh, local ingredients, according to a press release.

“By duplicating the success we’ve seen for Black Rooster China and emphasizing fresh, healthy and organic ingredients, Black Rooster Lake Washington is poised to become the restaurant of choice for families, working professionals, students, retirees and tourists,” said Yongsheng Guo, owner and operator of Black Rooster Lake Washington and Black Rooster China, in a press release.

“An internationally acclaimed establishment like Black Rooster could have selected anywhere in the Seattle area – or even the United States – to open its first North American restaurant,” said Kip Spencer, director of leasing and marketing for SECO Development, in the release. “The fact that they specifically chose Southport for its waterfront access, as well as its proximity to the highly anticipated Southport Office Campus and recently opened Hyatt Regency Lake Washington, speaks volumes for the tremendous desirability of this location.”

Black Rooster’s menu will highlight Chinese-style baked breads, organic salads, house-made organic tofu, oversized meatballs, dumplings and organic steamed black chicken soup.

According to the release, Black Rooster plans to invite twelve celebrity chefs from China every year. Each chef will specialize in unique styles of Chinese cuisine, creating their own menu that will run the twenty-seat dining area – only available by reservation — for two to three weeks at a time. The restaurant also plans to partner with local vineyards and breweries to feature a meticulously curated beer, wine and cocktail spread to complement the food.
