Before filing for bankruptcy protection in July, Seattle-based RUI Holding Corp. operated more than 30 polished casual restaurants under several iconic West Coast banners including Henry’s Tavern, Newport Seafood Grill, Palomino, Portland Seafood Company and Stanford’s.
Last week, a federal bankruptcy court approved the sale of certain RUI assets to Houston-based Landry’s for $37.2 million. Since that time, several Restaurants Unlimited locations have closed or been purchased by another hospitality firm.
On Friday, Nation’s Restaurant News obtained a list of the RUI locations that Landry’s opted to buy.
The Houston-based restaurant company, whose empire of brands includes Mastro’s Steakhouse, Morton’s The Steakhouse, Landry’s Seafood House, Rainforest Cafe, Bubba Gump Shrimp Company, Joe's Crab Shack and McCormick & Schmick’s, kept 17 of RUI’s best performing restaurants in Alaska, Oregon, Colorado, Washington state, California and Minnesota.
"We selected their top units and are unaware of the disposition of the locations we didn’t take,” Steve Scheinthal, executive vice president and general counsel for Landry’s, told NRN in a statement.
