OUR STORY

Partners Justin Safier and Travis Lester formed Broseph’s Restaurant Group (BRG) in July of 2010 out a passion and love for the restaurant industry, as well as the belief in a need for more restaurants with outstanding culinary experience paired with exceptional atmosphere. The word Broseph reflects the uniquely loyal relationship that Travis and Justin have as partners as well as with their entire staff who are friends, and even more so, family.

In December of 2010, BRG opened their first restaurant, Bar Esquina, in the resort town of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. Bar Esquina features a unique twist on Internationally creative cuisine – Mexican influenced Mediterranean flavors that utilize locally grown and organic produce, fresh fish from the Pacific and Sea of Cortez, and the highest quality meats cooked on a mesquite grill. Bar Esquina quickly gained national and international recognition as one of the best restaurants in Cabo, and all of Mexico, and also marked the debut of BRG’s star chef, Chef Laurent Saussy, who has since signed on as Executive Chef of every future BRG property.

After the great success of Bar Esquina, BRG set their sights on Santa Monica, California as the location of their next endeavor. After a fast and furious 8-day re-vamp of the space previously known as Salute Wine Bar, Brick Mortar opened in February of 2012 and quickly cemented its status as Santa Monica’s best hotspot for incredible food in an exciting atmosphere. Brick Mortar incorporates the elements of a classic neighborhood bar in a chic, luxurious way, while serving up a mouth-watering menu of Modern American fare that surprises the senses by adding a twist to the simplest dishes with unique, artistic presentation."

Fall 2012 welcomed BRG’s third location in the gastronomically renowned city of West Hollywood. Fatty’s Public House is a Contemporary American restaurant and bar that pays tribute to the late owner of the property, Fatty Arbuckle.

By opening 3 restaurants in just two years, BRG has established itself as THE restaurant group to watch, with plans for multiple additions to their portfolio already in the works. The team attributes their success to their loyalty to each other, and their passion and desire to disrupt the hospitality industry by recognizing what each specific locale needs and delivering that community a tailored culinary experience with exceptional atmosphere
