After closing her popular East Dallas spot Good 2 Go Taco, Chef Colleen O’Hare has returned with a brand new seafood restaurant called The Keeper.

O’Hare has partnered up with FrontBurner, the restaurant group behind spots like Velvet Taco and the forthcoming Legacy Hall, to open the restaurant in Plano’s Shops at Legacy, reports D Magazine. This marks O’Hare’s return to the restaurant scene after splitting from former partner Jeana Johnson, with whom she opened Good 2 Go Taco and Lakewood Vietnamese restaurant Mot Hai Ba.

According to O’Hare, The Keeper will occupy a bright and beachy space that seats 250 near its sister restaurant Mexican Sugar. A window from the kitchen to the dining room will offer a live view of the restaurant’s fish cutter, who will hand-cut filets of uber fresh fish throughout the day. As far as booze is concerned, the spot plans to serve “tiki drinks and artisan rum.”

No word yet on an official opening date, but The Keeper is set to make its debut in August.
