Chef Harvey Yancey is at it again, making plans to open a new restaurant in Southeast Raleigh's new Farmington Square shopping center.
But this time, he vows to succeed.
"I promise you it's going to last," said the chef and well-known proprietor of several New Orleans-themed restaurants over the years.
Like the last iteration of Yancy's in downtown Raleigh, (named without the 'e'), the new Yancy's will carry the same name and feature New Orleans food and live entertainment.
But this time, patrons hoping to meet the restaurant's namesake shouldn't have too much trouble.
Unlike the last time, Yancey is taking the title of executive chef and plans to be on-site daily to monitor quality control. He also has new business partners and a larger "say-so" in the operations of the business.
"I'm a chef," he said. "I've got to be what I am. I'm going to be right in the back doing what I do."
