A History of Consolidated

Restaurants was founded in 1951 as Barb Enterprises when David Cohn
opened his first restaurant in Seattle.  The Barb Restaurant at Fourth
and Seneca featured barbecue sandwiches and a wide range of menu items
for lunch and dinner.  Cohn quickly expanded the company in the 1950’s
and 1960’s and located successful Barb Restaurants all over the Puget
Sound area, including a restaurant in the new Food Circus at the Seattle
Center following the Seattle World’s Fair.  During this same time, David
Cohn opened the Polynesia Restaurant, a groundbreaking concept on
Seattle’s waterfront at Pier 51.

 The 1970’s brought a new name,
“Consolidated Restaurants,” as the company began to focus on destination
restaurant concepts.  The company opened Elliott Bay Fish and Oyster
Company (now Elliott’s Oyster House) and Steamer’s Seafood Café at Pier
56 in 1975. The company continued its commitment to the Seattle
Waterfront when it opened Quincy’s (now Steamer’s Seafood Café) at Pier

 Consolidated Restaurants continued to
grow in the 1980’s, with thriving quick serve and full service
operations.  The quick service division added Quincy’s at the
Centerhouse in 1981 and Steamer’s at the Centerhouse in 1987.  In 1983,
CRI opened Metropolitan Grill in Seattle’s financial district. This
legendary steakhouse led the restaurant renaissance in downtown Seattle
and is considered one of the top ten steakhouses in the country. It was
also in 1983 that Mr. Cohn turned restaurant operations over to son Ron,
our current president who has continued in his footsteps. 

In 1990, Consolidated Restaurants opened
the classic Union Square Grill adjacent to the Convention Center in
downtown Seattle.  A revitalized Quincy’s and Steamers Seafood Café
Express opened at the Seattle Center in 1996. The company continued to
focus on its existing properties, celebrating the 30th
anniversary of Elliott’s Oyster House in 2005.

 Consolidated Restaurants entered the new
millennium poised for growth. The company has expanded to the suburbs,
with the addition of DC’s Grill in 2001, on the Sammamish Plateau.
Consolidated Restaurants has formed a partnership with Argosy Cruises to
bring a one-of a kind dinner ship to Seattle.  The Royal Argosy is a
floating fine-dining restaurant, featuring three on board galleys and
seating for up to 600 guests.  The Royal Argosy docks at Pier 56 next to
Elliott’s Oyster House. 

 In 2006, Consolidated Restaurants
celebrates 55 years as the premiere restaurant company in the Pacific
Northwest.  The company is an industry leader, with experience operating
Seattle’s best-known landmark restaurants and a long-held commitment to
the community.
