Karen Breen

June 29, 2018

A New York native, Karen is a hospitality vet through and through. She has a Bachelor’s of Science in Culinary Arts from Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI and during school she spent a summer studying abroad in Germany where she focused on European cooking and wine, learning how to perfectly pair the two. Most of her restaurant jobs have been in the kitchen, but she’s also made sure to work as a server to gain a greater understanding of the business from all aspects.

She had a stint as a personal chef in New England for a while. Prior to joining the front of house team at Ray’s she was a line cook for 5 years, 3 years working in the Cafe and 2 years on the Boathouse line. Working at Ray’s has felt like home to Karen she loves how passionate and dedicated the team is to their jobs and to the guests’ experience. When she’s not at Ray’s Karen can be found checking out a new restaurant with her friends, or at home cooking.
