Lane Harlan and Matthew Pierce

Coral Wig Restaurant opens

Lane Harlan’s new bar in Mt Vernon finds the restaurateur channeling the islands where she and her husband and business partner, Matthew Pierce, spent their childhoods. The “Coral Wig” was a piece of music Pierce wrote based on an experience the couple had snorkeling in the Caribbean. “…A school of squid stopped in front of Lane and remained suspended for some time,” she wrote. “Lane’s hair was long and floating all around her… like a coral wig.”

The following articles provide a lot more information about the bar that just opened on May 25, 2023.
