Steven Abrams

Born in Providence, RI, Steven grew up in his family’s retail business.  It was there that he learned the importance of successful customer service.  Steven attended Bentley College in Waltham, MA, which he credits for giving him the business strategies that have been instrumental in his success.  A few years after college, Steven left his family business for the restaurant industry. 

After a two-year stint with Tatou Restaurants first in Manhattan and then Aspen, CO, he teamed up with his college roommate, Richard Rosenthal.  Steven joined the Max Group as an assistant manager at Max on Main.  In 1996, he became a partner and opened Max Downtown in Hartford.  Steven is also a partner in Max’s Oyster Bar and Trumbull Kitchen

Steven feels his entrepreneurial skills and business practices have earned him a reputation as a leader and innovative manager.  He strives daily to exceed his customer’s expectations and motivate his staff to excellence.
