So, come swing by for a breakfast bagel, enjoy a deli lunch with friends, or hire us for catering.

Who We Are

Rye Society marks a return to Denver’s RiNo neighborhood for owner/operator Jerrod Rosen and his family. Great-grandfather Morris Klausner opened the Golden Rule Dry Goods store in 1922, just seven blocks away from today’s Rye Society location. Additionally, his greatgrandmother opened Rosen's Kosher Café in 1925, his father's parents ran several Rosen's Grocery stores in the 1930's, and his maternal grandfather owned The Oasis Restaurant in the 1960’s – all in Denver. Years later, Jerrod became a French Culinary Institute trained chef who honed his skills at the three Michelin-starred restaurant Per Se with Thomas Keller, and later with hospitality guru Danny Meyer at the award-winning Tabla Restaurant in New York City.

Ross Goldberg is the operating partner of Rye Society. Ross assisted in opening and expanding the Five Napkin Burger brand from one restaurant to seven, up and down the East Coast. From there, Ross moved to Colorado and became the beverage director at Boulder’s Brasserie Ten Ten, where he rose to the General Manager position. Ross is a true expert in restaurant operations, customer service, and creating the perfect experience for every guest.
