The origins of our brands date back to 1936 when the original Sant Ambroeus restaurant opened in the Italian capital of Milan. Since our arrival to New York City over 40 years ago, we have made our authentic Milanese roots the heart of our products and experiences, never losing sight of our role as caretakers of a rich cultural heritage.
Today, our three signature brands – Sant Ambroeus, Casa Lever, and Felice – can be found across New York City, Southampton, and Palm Beach. As a Group, we continue to evolve and grow within the world of hospitality, creating new and exciting expressions of the Italian experience rooted in time-honored traditions.
