Steak Frite Restaurant Seeks Space in Denver
Medium Rare Restaurant Group, an award-winning Washington, D.C.-based hotspot for steak frite lovers, is actively searching for restaurant space in affluent, high-density residential neighborhoods in Denver, as part of a national expansion to more than 26 new cities.
The 2,700-3,000-square-foot location should be in an existing restaurant space (conversion), which requires little time and less build-out costs and risks. The property should allow for a large outdoor seating area.
Medium Rare’s simple model of weekday dinner plus weekend brunch and dinner has proven to be recession-resistant and economically resilient.
“We’re more than just a restaurant,” says Mark Bucher, owner of Medium Rare. “We’re an economic engine and we want to plant ourselves in places that will not only be great for patrons but also accessible to the folks we’ll hire.”
Medium Rare Americanizes the French steak frites concept, while using fun French touches throughout the restaurant, such as recorded French lessons (pick-up lines) in the bathroom. Every visit to one of Medium Rare’s neighborhood locations means a consistently simple, fun, and friendly experience that leaves patrons eager to return again. Each of its three locations in D.C. averages 25–35 employees, with a salaried GM, AGM and Kitchen Manager. Having a Medium Rare location in Denver would provide for a fresh contender into the city’s culinary scene.
