Here's a scoop from the Winters Express, the weekly newspaper in the charming town of Winters. Buckhorn Grill, the revered steakhouse there, is franchising its operation; not only that, its first franchise location will be in New York City. What's more, the restaurant will be at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, a very high-profile address to say the least.
Buckhorn already has non-franchise locations in San Francisco (3), Walnut Creek, Emeryville and Sacramento (L Street and 18th). But if you want the true experience, you really need to head to Winters.
