Chef de Cuisine, Avenue N Providence
German Cos, a self educated chef, born in Guatemala has spent his entire life immersing himself in the art of food. Growing up in a household that enjoyed preparing meals from their native country he spent many days in the kitchen cooking with his family and extended family. German realized at a young age that cooking was something that excited him and he pushed himself to learn everything he could from the many talented chefs he would soon encounter.
German spent his early years at the popular 1149 Restaurant in East Greenwich before he became a member of the opening culinary team at Avenue N Rumford. German worked side by side with Nick for 6 years before spreading his wings and taking over the kitchens of some of Rhode Island’s most popular restaurants, such as Chapel Grille and Mare Rooftop. We were thrilled when Chef German found his way back home to Avenue N just a few months ago to take on the role of Chef de Cuisine of our Providence location.
German’s tremendous culinary expertise along with his strong leadership style and desire to learn every day has made him one of our most valued team members. When he is not keeping things running smoothly in Providence he can often be found cooking at home for his family or kitchen crew, spending time with his wife, Vicenta and his daughters Allison and Jessy or kicking the soccer ball around with his teammates.
