Aby Rosen, born in Frankfurt, lives in New York City since 1987. Here he founded, together with his childhood friend Michael Fuchs, 1991 RFR (Rosen Fuchs Real Estate). To mention just a few objects of their real estate tycoons:
Gramercy Park Hotel, in partnership with his longtime friend and co-founder of the legendary Studio 54 Ian Schrager; 610 Lexington, Lever House.
Also in Germany, especially in Frankfurt, the RFR is in property of a large real estate portfolio. So they bought in 2007 the former headquarters of the European Central Bank. In addition, the company owns the Swift House at Jungfernstieg and the Kaufmann House located at „Große Bleiche“ street in Hamburg.
It remains exciting and the success story of Roomers in Frankfurt will be continued: In 2023, together with the RFR, the Roomers ParkView in Frankfurt’s Westend will open.

Mr. The Duc Ngo, born in Vietnam, characterizes the Asian cuisine in Germany like no other – particularly his new interpretation of sushi & roll. In the age of 24 he opened his first sushi and barbecue restaurant „Kuchi“ in Berlin in 1999. Two years later „Kuchi 2“ followed, in 2007 and 2009 „Cocolo Ramen“ and „Cantina@Bar Tausend“ became his latest restaurants in Berlin. His innovative cuisine combines pan-Asian cuisine with French or Peruvian for example.
The Duc Ngo‘s first „out-of-Berlin“ project was „moriki“ in the towers of Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt. It opened in 2013. Only one year later the New York Times awarded moriki to „the place to visit“ in Frankfurt. In between Duc opened further restaurants on Berlin’s Kantstrasse, Madame Ngo, Funky Fisch, 893 Ryotei and the Ngo Kim Pak. Things are going on in Frankfurt as well, Roomers Restaurant has a new concept since early 2020: Pan Asia meets California at Burbank.
