SCARSDALE, N.Y. – Ben’s Restaurant is celebrating one year in Scarsdale, and the team has learned opening a new restaurant can be a challenge – one that requires ample training, finessing new computer systems and professionals who are already trained to handle daily operations.
Since taking over as general manager of the Scarsdale location last spring, Oscar Molina has been busy applying what he learned from his previous general manager positions at Ben’s Manhattan and Bayside locations to the new Scarsdale operation to provide the high-quality Ben’s experience that customers have come to know and love over the past 43 years.
“What we do can’t be taught in a training program or on the first day of the job,” said Molina. “High standards of customer service and quality, and fresh food, have always been our hallmarks. My goal is to show the people of Westchester all that is great about Ben’s Kosher Deli.”
Ben’s founder and owner Ronnie Dragoon convinced Chef Atilio Cyalis to move to New York from Boca Raton, Fla., where he’d helped open and operate Ben’s largest location.
A 90-guest party room upstairs comes complete with full audiovisual capabilities, an area for dancing and a balcony that offers the flexibility to accommodate any party, meeting or event.
In celebration of the Scarsdale location's anniversary, Ben’s is offering combos priced at $20.16 and $1 specials on individual menu items from mid-January to March 31. The Scarsdale-only specials include everything from appetizers and sides to entrées and drinks. There will also be featured pricing on bar items every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 3-6 p.m.
