A new steak-and-seafood restaurant is in downtown Orlando, thanks to some familiar faces.

As reported by the Orlando Business Journal, the Seychelles restaurant opens shortly on downtown 25 W. Church St., right on the busy corner of Church Street and Orange Street.

The owners of the Restaurant Seychelles concept include Robert Kelly, Mitchell Molyneaux and Eugene Aristil, chefs at 534 Scratch Kitchen, according to OBJ. Astril is no stranger to the turf section of the steak and seafood combo after working as a chef at Fleming’s Steakhouse.

There’s no official opening date for the Seychelles yet, but expect it sooner rather than later.

Despite a dramatic drop in downtown daytime traffic, the city appears to be experiencing a boom of new businesses this year, from food halls to bars to upscale restaurants.
