COLUSA, CA – Colusa Casino Resort and the Colusa Indian Community Council will open a new restaurant, The Branded Butcher, on November 24.

The American-style chophouse will offer guests quality, hand-cut steaks, burgers, and ribs in a friendly, familiar atmosphere. Guests will be able to enjoy televised sports, live entertainment on the weekends, signature cocktails, and occasionally, line dancing lessons.

The grand opening party will be an all-day celebration on Dec. 2, beginning at 11:00am, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Country music artist Chad Bushnell will perform on the The Branded Butcher stage during the celebration.

“We are very excited to introduce The Branded Butcher to the community of Colusa,” said Victor Fernandez, General Manager. “We’ve poured our hearts into the transformation of the restaurant space and the new menu and look forward to stretching our culinary wings in an environment perfect for meeting friends to watch a game or enjoy a live band. We can’t wait to host our guests, celebrate with them, and share with them what we’ve been working on for the past few months.”

The kitchen will be led by Executive Chef Joel Santiago, whose culinary background includes experience with Disney, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Florida and as Executive Chef for the Dallas Cowboys in Frisco, TX.

Chef Joel and his team will serve The Branded Butcher’s menu of classic American cuisine, including appetizers such as the restaurant’s Loaded Tumbleweed Tots and entrees such as a decadent Tomahawk steak for two cooked to order.

The Branded Butcher will be open Thursday to Sunday, offering a late-night menu Friday and Saturday and brunch on Sunday, with live entertainment on Saturday nights.
