John Ambrose, Westchester restaurateur, dies! R.I.P.

He relished the restaurant business, John Ambrose did. Over his long career, he opened the original Crab Shanty in Mamaroneck, since closed. And followed along with long-time partner/restaurateur Sam Chernin to open Seaside Johnnie's in Rye, then Pier Restaurant & Tiki Bar in Rye. I had known John for more than 30 years, and was the recipient of his kindness on many occasions. He will be missed as a restaurant man and unique individual. He suddenly passed away this past week. R.I.P., John. My condolences to his family and many friends.
Do you have any memories of John Ambrose? Please share...
