ORLANDO, Fla. – There’s going to be a new, highly anticipated restaurant in Orlando!

Blake Shelton’s Southern-style Ole Red Orlando announced its opening one day after the country music star’s birthday, June 19, WKMG reports.

“My birthday is June 18, but Ole Red Orlando is opening June 19, that’s way more important,” Shelton said in a video on Instagram.

The restaurant was supposed to open in April at ICON Park on International Drive, near the 400-foot Wheel. However, that didn’t happen due to the coronavirus pandemic, restaurant officials said.

When it opens, Ole Red will adhere to CDC and local health department guidelines by positioning tables at least 6 feet apart, officials said.

According to the restaurant, every guest will be seated at a table, and groups are limited to six or less. Menus, plates, silverware and condiments will be single-use and disposable, the restaurants announced. The dance floor will also be closed to “ensure physical distancing.”

Staff will be required to wear PPE and have temperature checks before each shift.
