Anaheim Ducks forward Teemu Selanne is set to open Selanne Steak Tavern on Friday.
The high-end steakhouse in Laguna Beach is a joint venture with local business owner Kevin Pratt.
The restaurant is located at what was once French 75, which closed late last year when French 75 owners John Martin and Rudy Pollak sold it to a group of investors.
Selanne Steak Tavern tapped Joshua Severson to be its executive chef. Severson comes to the restaurant from the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort & Spa.
