Director of Sales
Growing up on the California Central Coast and Greater Bay Area (with a passion for fresh, sustainable, local, and organic food), Grace hosted small catered gatherings in High School, slowly graduating to working with other catering groups ‘In Wine Country’ willing to show her the ropes. Staging in kitchens in the US, Israel, and London, Grace progressed through Culinary School both in California’s East Bay, and Connecticut refining her skills and developing her pallet. Taking a break between culinary schools, Grace took a job as an Assistant Manager of a small restaurant in Marin County and fell in-love with both flow of service and the interaction with guests. After finishing Culinary School in Connecticut, and working in NYC as a Pastry Chef and Chocolatier, Grace turned back to her love of events and hasn’t looked back! From working for Lello Arpaia at his last restaurant Fiorini, to the top of The Ritz Carlton in White Plains, to running events for all three locations of CorkBuzz, and most recently for the Cafeteria Group, Grace is excited to marry her love of the Californian approach to food with the New York sensibilities of Loring Place!
