Anderson founders of Piñon Grill, serving New American cuisine at The Terrace at Town Center in Boca Raton, and Brimstone Woodfire Grill, a contemporary American steakhouse located at The Shops at Pembroke Gardens in Pembroke Pines are introducing a third restaurant and bar concept named “The Grille on Las Olas” slated to open this summer in Fort Lauderdale.

Cozy and comfortable indoor and outdoor patio dining areas are planned along with private dining environments for corporate and social guests. Innovative menu offerings presented in an upscale setting will cater to Fort Lauderdale’s business executives and young professionals, leisurely diners and burgeoning tourism market.
“The time was ripe to expand on our recent restaurant success and introduce our parent entity Rainmaker Restaurant Group,” explains Managing Director, Kevin Blair. “Since our start in South Florida in 2008, both Piñon Grill (est. 2010) and Brimstone Woodfire Grill (est. 2008) have been well received respectively by their local communities. Our entire team is excited to introduce our third restaurant concept to the Fort Lauderdale community. The Rare steakhouse space was an enviable spot for our new restaurant which we are looking forward to introducing this summer,” adds Anderson.
Rainmaker Restaurant Group, committed to developing “local restaurant concepts for local communities”
