Bailey’s Update: Gundy Gone

by Steven Doyle

In the continuing saga over at Bailey’s Prime Plus, we are sent word that Gary Van Gundy has resigned from the company which also oversees Bailey’s, Patrizio’s, Chesterfield and Uptown Bar and Grill. This might prove good news for those that have been following the restructuring within the company. The move allows Ken Kuczwaj to take a greater role within the company and continue his work to build the brands.

We know about the recent brouhaha over at Chesterfield which Bailey has an interest along with celeb-barman Lucky Campbell, plus a slew of Patrizio’s (and a new one on the way in Southlake). Then we grab news that Bailey is the new owner of Uptown Bar and Grill.

So Bailey has plenty of restaurants in the area, but the flagship steakhouse really hasn’t taken off the way he would have liked.  The concept is different than your usual steakhouses. Bailey’s was actually created to be an upscale steakhouse that would attract women. So why hasn’t the concept worked?    Continue reading
