LAKE MARY, Fla. - Another celebrity chef is opening up a restaurant in Orlando.
FOX 35 News spoke with Richard Blais about the concept. He was the winner of Bravo's Top Chef: All-Stars show Back in 2011. Now, Blais is getting ready to open up his new restaurant at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort. It will be a tropical theme.
Blais said he decided to open up a restaurant here because he has a lot of family here as well.
"Humble roots, you know, starting in a fast-food restaurant," he explained. "So I've always worked in restaurants before I knew that that was really my calling and I just love the energy of restaurants and cooking for people."
Blaze will also co-host and new cooking show with Gordon Ramsay. It's called Next Level Chef and will air on FOX 35 in January.
