Chef Edie Lanier is an honors graduate of the Culinary Arts program at The Art Institute of Houston.
Spoonbills Restaurant in Matagorda is her first step in pursuing her life-long dream of owning a restaurant.
Why Matagorda? As a life-long weekend resident of Matagorda (her family has owned a beach house since 1959) she has watched as the town and island have grown from a sleepy backwater to one of the hottest properties on the Texas coast. A restaurant that features fresh seasonal foods will be a first for Matagorda County.
Chef Edie is an avid fisherman and has spent many hours on Matagorda bays. In fact, she holds the Texas state record for a Triple Tail that was caught in West Matagorda Bay.
