SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Ben's Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant & Caterers recently hosted a groundbreaking event to open its new Scarsdale location.
Ben's representatives said the decision to open a location in Westchester "was due to customer demand for a quality, Kosher delicatessen in the area," according to a news release. The groundbreaking took place on Oct. 17 at the new Ben’s, 718 Central Park Ave. in Scarsdale, according to the release. The location, which is set to officially open in early 2014, has a second-story catering space and a full bar, according to the release.
“We really want our Scarsdale location to have a much broader appeal,” said Scott Singer, president and CSO of Ben’s, in the release. “With this Ben’s, we’re looking to evolve the traditional delicatessen of yesteryear into a more modern offering for today’s busy consumers and families who want convenience, but don’t want to sacrifice quality.”
The 5,700-square-foot space will have "a different, more embellished menu than other Ben’s locations — with an extensive list of freshly made daily specials that will appeal to a broader customer base — in addition to the traditional Kosher deli fare that made Ben's famous," according to the release.
“This new location has special meaning to me, as I grew up there,” said Singer in the release. “We always had a few Kosher delis in the area, but one by one, they started to disappear. The demand for a Ben’s Restaurant from the Westchester consumers was overwhelming. We’re happy to be able to give the public what they’ve been craving.”
