Stephen Starr is the visionary and creative force behind STARR Restaurants, one of the largest multi-concept and independent restaurant groups in the country. We’ve built our reputation by redefining expectations—moments that surprise, details that delight, and flavors that linger long after the last plate has been cleared.

Origin Story

From an early age, Stephen Starr knew he wanted to entertain people. At 21 he opened Grandmom Minnie’s, serving food by day and comedy by night. Next came Stars, a cabaret that featured then-emerging acts like Jerry Seinfeld, and later Ripley Music Hall, where U2 and Bruce Springsteen took the stage. In 1989, he founded The Concert Company that produced large-scale stadium acts, orchestrating memorable shows from the likes of Madonna and George Michael.

STARR Restaurants brings a world of flavor to a group of restaurants as diverse as they are daring. From Latin America to Asia, from the US to the UK and beyond, STARR awakens tastes and enlivens palates with creative interpretations of rich cooking traditions from around the world.
