Our Story


Scarlet Kitchen & Lounge is a family-owned business in every sense of the word.

Riordan’s husband, mother, and father are all involved in the day-to-day operations at the restaurant. Chef Paige is joined in the kitchen by her father Chef Marty Manley, a former East Coast commercial fishing captain, who attended culinary school at the Art Institute of Orange County. The father-daughter duo attended their respective culinary schools simultaneously, and much like the menu at Scarlet itself creates a convergence of East Coast meets West Coast. Her husband Matt Riordan, a former finance executive, will run front-of-house operations as the restaurant’s general manager; and her mother, Anne Manley, co-owner and CFO of a family owned business on the East Coast will manage business operations including HR and financials.
