Oudom Ketsatha to open new restaurant in Lake Eola space known for churn


  • Google Maps
Oudom Ketsatha could very well be the most fearless restaurateur in the city.

When Ketsatha expanded his Oudom Thai & Sushi footprint to Orlando, he did so by opening at 100 S. Eola Drive, Suite 105, a space that's chewed up and spit out a number of high-end eateries.

Then he took over Suite 104 – the equally jinxed space next door – for his Mexican concept, Coco Cocina.

Both, perhaps surprisingly to superstitious sorts, are still around and kicking.

Now he'll open Osphere at 407 E. Central Blvd., a space that's seen Lake Eola Yacht Club, Spice Modern Steakouse and, most recently, Tre Bambine succumb to its (alleged) curse.

Word is Osphere will be a bar and grill concept and open early next year.

We've contacted Ketsatha for confirmation, but we believe he's busy transforming the I-4 Eyesore into a bustling ramen joint.
