James Beard Award-winning chef Andrew Black is opening a new restaurant next year.

Perle Mesta is slated to open in the spring of 2024 at the Skirvin Hotel.

“Chef Black brings a world of culinary talent and vision to our team,” said Chase Rollins, the general manager of the Skirvin Hotel. “With so many successful concepts and a James Beard award under his belt, Chef Black is the perfect person to bring an unmatched dining experience to life—and to further our mission to make Skirvin a luxury and culinary destination.”

The restaurant is a return to roots of sorts for Black. He first came to Oklahoma City about two decades ago to participate in the reopening of the Skirvin Hotel.

“It feels like I am going back home to my family, where it all began. This is just the beginning,” Black said.

Perle Mesta will be located on the first floor of the hotel.
