Guest Service Specialist / Instructor / Entrepreneur
As owner of Avenue N American Kitchen & The Pantry at Avenue N Tracy is the driving force of what truly defines the mission statement of her acclaimed eateries, genuine and superior hospitality. Growing up in a family that took great pride in food and dining she has long been attracted to tht art of entertaining. It is an art that she has cultivated professionally over the last three decades and continues to perfect. While today she is most known for the restaurants she owns with her husband Nick in Rumford and Providence she has made many dynamic contributions to our local industry. Tracy has been influential in sculpting some of the most distinguished restaurants and food groups in Rhode Island. Upon graduating from college she immediately began perfecting her skills in hospitality consecutively managing two of Providence's most prominent restaurants. Eventually becoming a marketing specialist and national trainer for one of the world's largest food service providers, Tracy culminated her career by becoming an instructor in the College of Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University in 2010.
Tracy continues to stay active in the current restaurant and food industry, as well as being involved in the schools and activities of her three sons. If you don't see her greeting guests at Avenue N or merchandising goods at The Pantry she is likely to be found on a baseball or football field, swinging kettlebells at her local gym or buried under piles of dirty laundry. Occasionally, she still finds time to explore her passion for cooking and wine and likes nothing more than sharing a glass or two on the porch with Nick.
