FSR Magazine named Ocean Prime and the Rusty Bucket Restaurant and Tavern to its FSR 50 list of emerging brands. Criterion for inclusion is to be, in the publication’s words, “high-potential, performance-proven full-service brands” with fewer than 50 units.
The 24-restaurant Rusty Bucket chain, which is a sister brand to the other Mitchell nameplates, was praised for its attention to detail in food and drink.
“Rusty Bucket calls itself a casual-dining experience, but there’s an executive chef leading made-from-scratch menus in every location. And true to its tavern vibe, there’s a stellar beverage program with craft cocktails and signature spirits and beer,” the publication wrote.
