Lisa Vanderpump’s twenty-six restaurants aren’t the only thing keeping this business-minded maven rollin’ in the dough. Besides RHOBH and Vanderpump Rules – she’s got a boatload of other ventures to keep her busy…
Lisa Vanderpump exploded into the homes of mainstream America with her appearance on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Vanderpump Rules. For those of you not so familiar with the latter who are asking “Eh? What is Vanderpump Rules?”, well, it is a highly successful spin-off of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills starring none other than the fabulosity that is this woman, Lisa Vanderpump. The show takes place at one of the Vanderpump’s restaurants by the name of SUR. Are you wanting to visit and asking “Where is SUR?” SUR is on the elite Robertson Blvd. in West Hollywood, CA. Many also wonder “When did SUR open?” It’s somewhat unclear, but based on our research it opening in late 2011. The opening was featured in a January 2012 episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which is still one of the highest rated episodes in the history of the show.
What does SUR mean you ask? Well, that’s exactly what we’re here for! The word sur is French in origin and actually means “on/above” — as in Sur La Table.
However, in the book of Vanderpump, it means – brace yourself — Sexy. Unique. Restaurant. Yep — Not even joking. You literally couldn’t make this stuff up.
