About Us

George Korten, President of the George Martin Group, graduated from Cornell University School of Hotel Management. At the beginning of his career, he was the General Manager of a number of West Side Ark restaurants including Ernie’s, Perretti’s, Museum Café and Nanny Rose.

In 1997, George opened his first restaurant, Mim’s in Syosset. Two years later, George Martin the Original opened in Rockville Centre, followed by Nick DiAngelo in Merrick. After a successful run, Nick’s was reinvented and a complete transformation was accomplished through the development of the Grillfire concept. Grillfire in Hanover, MD opened in July 2011.

The GM Burger Bar concept was developed and opened in Rockville Centre in 2013.

Strip Steak, an upscale steakhouse located in Great River and Vivo, a bustling Italian kitchen, located in Hanover, MD, will leave you looking forward to your next visit.
