Beginning with Barrington’s in 2000, MRG has been a longtime supporter of local purveyors—not because it’s trendy, but because it’s better. This translates across all aspects of MRG and its dedication to support small businesses of all kinds, be it farmers, artisans, or designers—because a commitment to community is a commitment to the people who call it home.OUR FRIENDS

A native New Englander, Chef Bruce Moffett fell in love with the South. Head of Charlotte-based MRG and founding chef of four restaurants—Barrington's, Good Food on Montford, Stagioni, and NC•RED—Moffett is known for creating dishes inspired by both New England and southern culinary traditions. With the simple, compelling aim of making people happy through his cooking, the chef builds immense flavors in every morsel he prepares and serves—and in this lavishly illustrated cookbook he shows you how to do the same.
Charlotte Magazine named Bruce and Kerry Moffett as “Restaurateurs of the Year” in 2009.
Garden and Gun featured Barrington’s and Good Food in a city profile of charlotte in 2011 claiming “There are talented cooks on the Charlotte fine-dining scene. I discovered as much during meals at Bruce Moffett’s two restaurants.”
Named “Top For Food in Charlotte” in Zagat’s Top Restaurants in America guide consistently since 2003.
