Construction continues to push forward as Summer House on the Lake takes shape before its 2023 debut.
Summer House on the Lake
The structure has slightly layered sections of the roof to create a dynamic façade with awnings.
We didn’t see any construction crews actively working on this visit, but the roofline of Summer House on the Lake has taken more shape with added steel framework. Scaffolding also surrounds the roofline as construction continues.
The walls surrounding the construction site showcase photos of some of the dishes you might be able to try once the restaurant finally opens. The restaurant will feature a menu of fresh, modern American cuisine, including seafood and steak options. With indoor and outdoor seating, diners will be able to enjoy views of the lake while savoring their meals. The decor will be sleek and contemporary, with touches of natural wood and greenery. Expect a lively atmosphere, with a full bar and specialty cocktails.
Summer House on the Lake was announced in the summer of 2022, taking over the space formerly planned for Beatrix. The new restaurant is a spin-off of the popular Chicago and North Bethesda, MD restaurant Summer House Santa Monica. Both Beatrix and Summer House Santa Monica are owned by Lettuce Entertain You.
The completed exterior will be gray and white, with vine-covered walls and planters. The interior will also be white, with wicker chairs and plants throughout.
