Eugene Remm is a New York-based Entrepreneur, Restaurateur and commentator on the Hospitality industry. Remm has been dubbed by Forbes Magazine as one of the “New Kings of New York Hospitality[1]”.

EMM[edit]

Remm and his partner Mark Birnbaum founded EMM Group (now known as Catch Hospitality Group) in 2006.[2] EMM has developed a portfolio of successful ventures across New York, Los Angeles, Dubai,[3] and Playa del Carmen. Remm's present focus is the domestic and international expansion of EMM's seafood concept "CATCH" with its original location in New York City's Meatpacking District[4] after noticing that there was a noticeable lack of "traditional seafood restaurant in the neighborhood".[5] Recently, EMM Group welcomed a new partner, Tillman Fertitta.[6][7]

Biography[edit]

Remm, the son of Russian immigrants, was born in Russia and grew up in Brooklyn, Queens and New Jersey[8] before attending Long Island’s Hofstra University, where he ran a bar and started speculating in real estate.[9] Later, Remm ran NYC lounges for the Gerber Group and Steven Hanson from B.R. Guest. That led to Remm's passion for food and beverage. In 2006, he went on to co-found EMM (Catch Restaurants, Lexington Brass) and launch a series of clubs including TenJune with partner Mark Birnbaum.[10]

Hospitality Commentator[edit]

Remm and his EMM partners are also known for their role as commentators on the Hospitality market, especially in the New York area.[11] Remm has been cited for his role in shaping the hospitality industry in the New York area on Entrepreneur,[12] The New York Post,[13] Modern Luxury and Forbes as one of the “New Kings of New York Hospitality”.[14][15] Remm and his partner Mark Birnbaum implemented dynamic hospitality experiences by using food, service and vibe to create transitions between dining, nightlife and entertainment.

Ventures[edit]

Since 2006, Remm has been involved with several NYC properties including Tenjune, Catch,[16] Lulu’s,[17] Abe & Arthur’s and SL New York,[18][19] as well as a club in Miami.[20] In 2015, EMM opened international locations at Catch Dubai, in Dubai, UAE and Catch Playa del Carmen in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.[21] Seafood restaurant Catch (2011) went from a standalone NYC flagship to an international phenomenon with locations in L.A., Dubai and Playa del Carmen and additional outposts slated for 2018.

Eugenes' newest venture is Rumble Boxing, a boxing-inspired group fitness concept along with partners Noah Neiman, Andy Stenzler and Anthony DiMarco. The 45-minute, 10-round workout combines boxing-inspired cardio and full-body strength training. Rumble has brick-and-mortar locations in Manhattan’s Flatiron and NoHo neighborhoods, and 2018 expansion plans for L.A., San Francisco, D.C, and Philadelphia. It has a recent minority stake acquisition by lifestyle operator, Equinox Fitness Clubs. Remm holds the chief concept officer position.
