The owners of King Bao are opening up a new restaurant down the street called Colonial Lobster, a concept that will focus on every New Englander's (and many Orlandoans'), favorite staple: the lobster roll.

The Mills 50 lunch spot announced on its Instagram Wednesday that the new concept will center on lobster rolls, seafood and craft beers. Colonial Lobster has not announced an opening date but is "coming soon," according to owners.

Colonial Lobster will be located at 1225-A E. Colonial Drive.
