Eugene Remm is a New York 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”.



Remm and his partner Mark Birnbaum founded EMM Group in 2006. EMM has developed a portfolio of successful ventures across New York, Dubai, Playa del Carmen, and Miami. 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 after noticing that there was a noticeable lack of "traditional seafood restaurant in the neighborhood".


Remm, the son of Russian immigrants, was born in Russia and grew up in Brooklyn, Queens and New Jersey before attending Long Island’s Hofstra University, where he ran a bar and started speculating in real estate. Later, Remm ran NYC lounges for the Gerber Group and Steven Hanson from B.R. Guest before co-founding EMM in 2006 and launching a series of clubs including TenJune with partner Mark Birnbaum.

Hospitality Commentator

Remm and his EMM partners are also known for their role as commentators on the Hospitality market, especially in the New York area. Remm has been cited for his role in shaping the hospitality industry in the New York area on Forbes, Entrepreneur, The New York Post, and Modern Luxury.


Since 2006, Remm has been involved with several NYC properties including Tenjune, Catch, Finale, Lulu’s, Abe & Arthur’s, SL New York… La Cenita, and The General, as well as a club in Miami. EMM also manages a Hamptons estate and in 2015 opened international locations at Catch Dubai, in Dubai, UAE and Catch Playa del Carmen in Playa del Carmen, Mexico.
