OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City Thunder basketball player Kevin Durant broke ground on his first restaurant venture Tuesday.

The restaurant will be located between Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill and Harkins movie theater and is expected to be another popular destination point along the canal in Lower Bricktown's entertainment district.

The new restaurant will be approximately 10,000-square-foot, is being developed by Randy Hogan, and will be managed by the Hal Smith Restaurant Group, according to reports.

The Hal Smith Group also manages "Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill," which sits just to the east of the new restaurant.
