Six restaurant concepts have been selected by Nation’s Restaurant News as its 2006 Hot Concepts! by the editors of NRN.
Among the winners: Cheeseburger in Paradise.
The chain, their leaders and employees will be honored May 21 in Chicago during the Nation’s Restaurant News Hot Concepts! celebration at the John G. Shedd Aquarium. The event, sponsored by Equal, will take place during the annual National Restaurant Association show.
Cheeseburger in Paradise was founded in August 2002 and now is owned by Outback Steakhouse, under a license from singer-songwriter Jimmy Buffett. The “island fantasy” concept features colorful cocktails and live music as well as Key West-style architecture and decor that offer customers an escape from the daily grind.

“He’s got great melodies about everyday life,” Pete McGraw, an Army contractor who works at Fort Myer, said of Buffett.
Mike Martin has seen Buffett in concert every year since 1988. To make sure he had tickets this year, the first sergeant got up at 4 a.m. to make the drive from Virginia Beach, Va., to Fort Belvoir.
