OKLAHOMA CITY – It used to be a tribute to an Oklahoma City Thunder superstar that became popular for its delicious southern cuisine.

When Kevin Durant decided to head to the coast, Kd’s Southern Cuisine began thinking of a new name.

In July, Hal Smith Restaurants announced that Kd’s was closing and would reopen under a new name.

On Tuesday, the company announced that the restaurant will now become Legacy Grill, a restaurant that focuses on celebrating Oklahomans and their contributions to athletics, business, entertainment and public policy.

Guests will be surrounded by memorabilia from more than 200 Oklahomans.

“Legacy Grill is creating an atmosphere that aligns with what we at the Oklahoma Hall of Fame do every day – telling our state’s amazing story through our people,” said Shannon L. Rich, Oklahoma Hall of Fame CEO. “We think it will help bring a unique aspect to the dining experience, and hopefully guests will learn something fun while being inspired by Oklahoma’s best and brightest along the way.”

Legacy Grill will feature favorites from Kd’s Southern Cuisine, along with a few new choices.

Officials say the essence of the restaurant’s menu will be the same, including the famous fried chicken and other comfort food items.

According to its website, Legacy Grill will open Sept. 12, 2016.
