A new casual restaurant opened today in the former Smiling Bison location, just south of Baldwin Park.

Blue Jacket Grille, a "neighborhood-style" restaurant featuring a plethora of beer, burgers, wings and flatbreads, held a soft-opening over the weekend and officially opened its door this afternoon.

The new spot is located at 745 Bennett Rd.

Smiling Bison closed their Orlando location last December and has since reopened in Sanford.
