Chef, television personality, and author Vivian Howard is opening two new restaurants in Charleston this summer.

According to an article by Garden & Gun, the two restaurants will be called Lenoir and Handy & Hot. Lenoir is described as a "casual, sixty-seat dinner-only restaurant and bar" while Handy & Hot is a " brick-and-mortar" version of her online bakery with to-go breakfast and lunch food.

Both the restaurant and cafe will be located on Wentworth Street.

Howard is best known for her Peabody and Emmy Award-winning show "A Chef's Life", that aired on PBS.
