As self-professed foodies, Mike and Amanda Luther always had the plan of opening a restaurant floating around in the back of their minds. The opportunity to make good on that plan came to fruition when they found out the Red Cedar Grill in Williamston
was for sale.
"We wanted to breath new life into a restaurant people knew and loved," explains Amanda. "We're leaving some of the favorite menu items, like the carrot cake, but we're exploring some new options that will change seasonally and will offer some flavor experiences you can't get anywhere else."
With a focus on providing local fare and partnering with local vendors and farmers, the Luthers also keep their eyes on providing a value to their guests. They're happy to announce their daily Bar Bites menu, which offers entrees and drinks for $3 to $4, a la happy hour style from 3:00 to 6:00 during the workweek.
They anticipate hiring 5 to 10 new staff members for a variety of positions including servers and line/prep cooks, after promoting many of the existing staff to full time status. Their motto? "Big city tastes in a small town," says Luther.
