IN LOVING MEMORY OF STEPHEN GEORGE, "THE ONLY" (1961-2003)
Tommy's younger brother Stephen, a graduate of Johnson and Wales in Providence, RI, was P&P's first chef in the '90s, and recipes he developed are still in use in our kitchens today. Look closely around our original Providence Rd. location and you'll spot the objets d'art he was known to acquire (such as a rare original painting by his friend, sushi chef Ru San) and even one of his own "melted phone" artworks. Suffering from bipolar disorder, Stephen died by suicide in his adopted hometown of Key West on October 3, 2003. His memory inspires us every day and his outsize influence will forever remain at the heart of Pasta & Provisions.
