The Norwich and Elliott Families
Many of you know our long-standing connection to the El Paso community. We own and operate successful family businesses in El Paso and have done so for many years. The Norwich family has been in the restaurant business for over 28 years and the Elliott’s in the office equipment/information technology business.
We are your neighbors representing Franklin High School (Elliott kids all graduated from there — Matt, Jake, Kristiana and Joe) and Coronado High School (Graduates Michael and Jeffrey while Jackson is still at attending there). We’ve been in love with Ripe from the time it was opened by the super brother and sister duo, Adam and Becky (Adkins) Lampinstein and purchased it from them in 2014.
Their legacy lives on as we commit to the pursuit of the dining perfection; white table-cloth quality food and impeccable service in a casual, neighborhood-friendly environment. We are thankful to the Lord for providing us with Ripe. Everyone from our extended family; our Ripe team and loyal patrons are a blessing to us. We hope that you will love Ripe as much as we do and invite you to join us soon. We look forward to meeting you!
