The New David’s Restaurant At Live! Hotel Serves Up Global Cuisine, Breakfast All Day, and Local Favorites Inspired By The Cordish Companies’ Chairman David Cordish

Menu Showcases Flavors from The Chairman’s Travels Throughout the New World, Mediterranean, Pacific Rim, and Hometown Flavors from Maryland

The flagship Live! Hotel, which opens to the public on June 6, 2018, the 6th Anniversary of the Live! Casino opening, will treat guests to global flavors and 24-hour breakfast at the property’s newest restaurant, DAVID’S. Inspired by and named for The Cordish Companies’ Chairman David Cordish, David’s features an eclectic menu of culinary creations reflecting The Chairman’s favorite tastes from around the world.

Open 24/7, David’s offers a luxurious, yet comfortable, atmosphere just off the lively hotel lobby and steps from the bustling gaming floor. Menu selections feature large portions, perfect for sharing, bursting with flavors from the New World, Pacific Rim, Mediterranean, and local Maryland delicacies. Guests can also enjoy hand-crafted cocktails, fine wine, and house-made desserts.

“This restaurant is a true expression of some of my favorite dishes from all over the world, and my love for a good, hearty breakfast,” said David Cordish, Chairman, The Cordish Companies. “It is a special experience to walk through the restaurant and see beloved family photos while enjoying exotic aromas mixed with the familiar scents of Maryland. I’m thrilled with what our culinary team has created with this menu and I’m excited to share it with our guests.”

“Under the direction of Executive Chef Edward Evans and Chef de Cuisine James Johnson, our culinary team has designed an experience that takes guests on a global journey with traditional and non-traditional ingredients and spices they may not have tasted before,” said Robert Tedesco, Senior Vice President of Operations and Assistant General Manager of Live! Casino & Hotel. “This team knows David Cordish well and has done a masterful job at translating his vision into a unique culinary experience.”

Executive Chef Ed Evans, who has worked at Live! Casino since 2015, oversees the entire portfolio of restaurants on the property, including the region’s Zagat #1 rated Prime Rib Steakhouse and the popular Luk Fu Asian restaurant on the casino floor. Chef de Cuisine James Johnson, who joined the Live! team in February 2018, will oversee day-to-day operations and staffing for DAVID’s, and manage future menu development. Chef Johnson previously worked at Lumiere Place Casino and Hotel and River City Casino, both in St. Louis.
