“Brownie” has been a chef at Little Harry’s for the last eight and half years.
He’s also entering his thirty-third in the restaurant business.
His first job was at age fifteen at the Sirloin Saloon Restaurant in Rutland. Starting out as a dishwasher, he quickly learned the art of of the kitchen . . . speed, volume, and the fine art of “keeping it all together.”
Brownie also garnered an invaluable bit of experience working at Rutland’s extremely famous “Casa Bianca” restaurant under the wings of Peter Ryan (chef), Mary Henrichon, (waitress extraordinaire) perhaps the world’s greatest, and Lee Ryan, who was owner and chef. The Casa enjoyed a very prosperous, long career.
After the Casa, Brownie spent twelve years at Peppers Bar and Grill in Killington, owned by Goeff Gerrish who also owned The Nightspot, which is now Taboos, The Sante Fe Grill, and also Casey’s Caboose.
