Chef Colleen O’Hare is officially serving up sustainably-sourced seafood and umbrella-garnished tiki drinks at The Keeper, now open in Plano.

The new restaurant, opened in partnership between O’Hare and Dallas hospitality group FrontBurner, brings breezy vibes and an expansive dining room to its space at The Shops at Legacy. Situated near Mexican Sugar, the seafood-focused eatery will serve up crustaceans and other fare from the Gulf, all cracked, fileted, and cut in The Keeper’s kitchen.

As far as the food is concerned, diners can look forward to dishes like crab fried rice, oysters on the half shell, and chicken wings along with heartier fare like whole roasted fish, a lobster-topped B.L.T., and opah served over turmeric rice noodles with ginger, garlic, and pumpkin shoots. For folks not interested in seafood options, burgers, pork belly ramen, and a Vietnamese-style French dip sandwich will also be on offer.

The Keeper is open for lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday, starting at 11 a.m. Take a step inside the beachy new destination courtesy of Eater photographer Kathy Tran.
