Missing brunch at Bogart's? Head to the Red Room...

If you were a fan of Sunday brunch at the recently closed Bogart's American Grill, you might consider heading over to the Red Room.

Starting this week, the Red Room will offer a Sunday brunch that according to parent company Rocky Top Hospitality, "will resemble that of the popular brunches formerly held at Bogart's American Grill and Michael Dean's Seafood Grill and Oyster Bar." The brunch will include made-to-order omelets, pancakes, waffles and other brunch items.

The move is part of a continuing number of changes for Rocky Top restaurants this year as the company tries to spruce up its Triangle offerings and adjust its restaurants to better fit with the needs of diners. Bogart's closed at the end of last month following a 10-year run on Glenwood South in Raleigh. Michael Dean's closed a few weeks earlier and is currently being renovated to become Rocky Tops second Tribeca Tavern location.

Bogart's American Grill to close in downtown Raleigh

After 10 years as a downtown Raleigh staple, Bogart's American Grill will close its doors at the end of this month.

The closure is part  of an ongoing effort to renew and refresh this year from Bogart's parent company, Raleigh-based Rocky Top Hospitality. Already, Rocky Top renovated its Twisted Fork restaurant in North Raleigh and shuttered its first-ever restaurant, Michael Deans. That location is currently being renovated to become the chain's second Tribeca Tavern restaurant.

Rocky Top owner Dean Ogan said the Bogart's closure had a lot to do with timing.

"I've got a 10-year lease, and my 10-year lease is up," he said. "It had a good run, but this is a very trendy business, and I've either got to invest significant capital in that location and refresh the concept or close."

Bogart's final day of business will be Feb. 27. The restaurant's 40 employees were offered positions at other Rocky Top restaurants.

Carolina Hurricanes tickets offer discounts at Rocky Top Hospitality restaurants

So much to catch up on all that is going on in the Triangle's culinary scene!

This press release definitely caught my eye: on the back of every ticket to a Carolina Hurricanes home game is a 25 percent off food discount for any Rocky Top Hospitality restaurant. 

You may not recognize the company's name but I'm sure you know their restaurants: Michael Dean's, The Twisted Fork, Red Room, Bogart's, Hi5, and The Mash House Brewery in Fayetteville.
