Landry’s Restaurants, the operators of the Bubba Gump Shrimp and Claim Jumper chains in the US, is to acquire rival McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurants, in a $131.6m (£82.1m) deal. The deal comes after McCormick & Schmick's rejected an initial offer in April. Landry's will gain more than 80 restaurants through the deal, which is expected to close next month or early next year.
