FIRST ON SJO — The One Group Hospitality, Inc. is expected to announce on Friday that it has named James O’Donnell the executive chef for its STK Orlando restaurant scheduled to open this spring at Disney Springs.

Originally from San Diego, O’Donnell was previously associated with Cornerstone Management and Consulting as executive chef for its Michael Jordan’s Steakhouse in the Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut. His resume also includes partner and executive chef for The Captial Grille in Jacsonville and executive chef at House of Blues in Los Angeles. He has been with the Orlando project since December.

STK, which is identified on its website as a “modern, chic steakhouse” serving “reimagined American cuisine,” is the lead brand of The One Group, which also owns and operates Ansellina, Bagatelle and Gansevoort Park Rooftop in New York, as well as brands in London, Los Angeles and Milan. STK has locations in New York, Washington, D.C., Miami, Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and London. Besides Orlando, new STKs are expected to open soon in Dallas and Toronto.

STK Orlando will occupy a two-level, 15,000 square foot facility with two kitchens and an indoor/outdoor bar on the second level overlooking Disney Springs. An opening date has not yet been announced.
