After its acquisition by private equity firm The Walnut Group in late 2006, Stir Crazy is powered by some heavy hitters: chairman Frederic Mayerson was a cofounder of Chi Chi's Mexican Restaurants, CEO Michael Strauss created Harry's Pacific Grill and president and COO Greg Carey is a former COO of P.F. Chang's China Bistro. That last credential is particularly relevant for Stir Crazy, a full-service casual concept that features Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and Japanese food with a focus on fresh, quality ingredients and bold flavors. Six units are scheduled to open this year.
