Rick Ross
Eastchester Fish Gourmet reflects the vision and passion of its founder, Rick Ross. A graduate of Michigan State University Hotel and Restaurant Management School, he began his career with such companies as Hilton, Hyatt, and Windows on the World, where he specialized in purchasing while he developed an unerring expertise in fish and seafood selection. Rick opened the Eastchester Fish Market in 1981, and quickly expanded to offering casual dinner fare in the evenings. Building on that success, Rick created the stand alone Eastchester Fish Gourmet restaurant in 1997. Since then, the restaurant has been known for fine dining and both innovative and classic preparation of seafood and contemporary cuisine.

When Ossie Schonfeld, the founder of Ossie’s Famous Fish, opened his Borough Park store nearly a half century ago, his goal was to provide customers with fresh, high quality fish at affordable prices. While the company, which is still owned by the Schonfeld family, now operates out of Gourmet Glatt Emporium (and its Brooklyn-based sister store, Gourmet Glatt Market), that mission remains unchanged.
