Working with his father making only $166 a week and his uncle in the mob, Steve knew he wanted a better life for himself. School wasn’t his strong suit, so he Dj’d in the 70’s. Soon after opened a delivery sandwich shop out of his apartment. He out grew and moved to a spot in a strip mall making pizzas, pastas, sandwiches, and water ice. Steve's business continued to progress and he moved to a bigger building. In the early 90’s the economy crashed and he lost everything. In 1993, he moved to Ft. Lauderdale with merely $40 to his name and opened a new restaurant on Oakland Park Boulevard – Café Martorano. 18 years later, Café Martorano has become a worldwide sensation. The restaurant chain has expanded into five locations- Oakland Park Boulevard, Florida, 2 in Vegas, and Atlantic City. Steve has also made appearaces on: Jimmy Kimmel Live, The Fablife,, Good Morning America with Kathy Lee & Hoda, The Paula Deen Show, The Mo'Nique show, The Joan and Melissa show, The Housewives of Miami , and Extra with Mario Lopez.
