Emi McCullough ’22: Looking for a restaurant that serves fresh and healthy ingredientes, meaty sandwiches, hearty soups, and refreshing salads? Consider visiting The Rustic Bluebird. With options for everyone, such as gluten free, keto, vegan, and vegetarian selections, the restaurant remains truly a place everyone enjoys.
This family-owned business runs two locations, one in Romeo and the other located in Almont. The Romeo location is typically open for dinning, take out, and catering. But due to the pandemic, they only provide carryout and deliveries until further notice. The Almont location also remains open for carryout.
The owners, Chef Rick and Deana Hussey, always held a passion for the food and customer service industry. But the thought of missing out on holidays, working late nights, not being able to put their full ideas into action, and missing out on precious family moments, became the motivation behind opening a restaurant of their own. This way they hold the ability to create their own schedule, making it flexible and manageable for them.
Opening during the weekend of the Peach Festival in 2016, The Rustic Bluebird quickly became famous for their daily soups, the most popular soup being the Dill Pickle soup. Along with that, their huge portion sizes leave everyone amazed. Cortney Wyatt, one of the owners at The Rustic Bluebird, loves their portion sizes.
“You’re sure to have leftovers! And if not that’s okay! It’s entirely too delicious to put down,” Wyatt said.
In 2020, the Almont location came to life. The Husseys love that small town feel, and knew it would be a great addition to their business. It remains valuable to the Husseys to be able to form such close bonds with their guests, and they wanted to provide that to more small hometowns like Almont.
