Cameron Mitchell, the Columbus restaurateur whose empire has grown to 33 restaurants, is reinventing his company.

Last week, Mitchell said he will sell 19 Mitchell’s Fish Market restaurants, known as Columbus Fish Market locally, and three steakhouses to Ruth’s Chris Steak House Inc. The price was $94 million. His company, Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, entertained several bids and drew the interest of private-equity firms and other restaurant companies.
