Russell Restaurants LLC

HEAD COOK: Bruce Russell

COMPETITION: World Burger Championship

Owner/Chef Russell Restaurants LLC. My first job ever was working as a dishwasher in Elkhorn, WI. I was a college baseball player and injured my arm and took time off to rehabilitate and work at a restaurant in Walt Disney World. I fell in love with the restaurant world there and came back to Wisconsin and applied what I had learned and quickly grew through the management ranks. In 2011 I opened my first restaurant called AJ O'Brady's Irish Pub & Grill that is named after my kids. I opened with a chef I met in Disney and we had immediate success. Unfortunately I did not know my chef had some legal issues and I lost him immediately after opening. I was thrown to the fire to keep my kitchen successful and keep the business moving forward. No recipe book to go off of I had to recreate the menu and recipes over night or on the fly. We kept the success moving and we're known for our incredible food years later. 4 years after opening O'Brady's I opened a steak house and wrote the menu's for that as well. I'm excited to bring my chefs down and compete and see what we can do against the best.
