Biz Buzz: Guadalupe tavern moving to Orcutt

Far Western Tavern in Guadalupe, which has won numerous awards for its steak and barbecue, is moving to Old Town Orcutt in May or June next year.

Lack of weekday business volume and a pending costly retrofit of its building in Guadalupe prompted the decision to relocate, according to general manager Michael Cordsen.

The restaurant will continue to seat a total of about 250 people at the new Clark Avenue site at Pacific and Clark streets in Orcutt, he said.

Far Western Tavern will be closed for about two to three weeks when it relocates, Cordsen said.

The Rib Line opens Grover restaurant

San Luis Obispo County barbecue lovers can now add another stop to their favorite chicken and rib joints.

The Rib Line has opened a second location at 228 W. Grand Ave. in Grover Beach.

The new location serves a slightly different menu than the restaurant at 12308 Los Osos Valley Road in San Luis Obispo.

You can expect to see menu items such as barbecue beef ribs, chicken and sandwiches along with fresh salads and other fixins.

The Brahma Bull, a 4-pound tri-tip sandwich made famous recently when the Travel Channel’s “Man v. Food Nation” show paid a visit to the restaurant, is still on the menu for those hungry, brave and crazy enough to take on the challenge.

Fish and chips and clam chowder are additions to the Grover Beach menu and will be served only at that location.

A variety of beers and wines are also offered at both locations along with happy hour and drink specials. The restaurant offers free delivery in the Five Cities area.

SLO law firm closes third winery sale

San Luis Obispo law firm Andre, Morris & Buttery recently concluded its third winery sale contract with the sale of Landmark Winery to Sonoma Valley winery Overlook Vineyards.

The firm has now executed more than $100 million in winery sale contracts.

According to an article published in Wine Spectator earlier this month, Roll Global, which also owns Fiji Water, acquired Landmark Vineyards for an undisclosed sum.

The deal included the winery, inventory and an 11-acre vineyard.

This most recent transaction is the corporation’s second purchase of a California winery in less than a year.

In December, Roll Global bought Justin Vineyards and Winery in Paso Robles.

According to Wine Spectator, Roll Global plans to continue adding to its wine portfolio.
