It all began back in 1962 when Rye Ridge Deli first opened as “The Surrey”, an old fashioned luncheonette, before being sold to Joe Witkin and Sam Small circa 1970. Harry Martin, the current owner, bought Rye Ridge on December 12, 1983.
In 1988, Scott joined Harry at the deli. Harry made sure Scott learned the business from the ground up starting as a dishwasher and then to busboy before becoming a cook and then working the counter before he became a manager. Scott graduated from New York Institute of Technology in 1998 and has been here ever since.
