Dawn Kinoshita | General Manager Carbone's Kitchen
Dawn started working in restaurants as a hostess her freshman year in college back in 1995. Within a short few months, she began training as a server. In 2000, Dawn was hired by the Max Restaurant Group, where again she was hired as a hostess due to her lack of fine dining experience. She immediately proved herself as a valuable employee and was then cross trained as a server and bartender. By the summer of 2005, Dawn knew that although she was graduating with a master’s degree in education, her passion was hospitality. She lives and breathes restaurants in every way possible and was then able to understand that work isn’t work when you love what you do. Dawn left the Max Group to get her feet wet in management. She was hired as an assistant manager at a local pub, where she worked for a year and a half before being sought out by Vito’s Restaurants. Between 2006-2007, Dawn was promoted within Vito’s from restaurant manager to general manager of Vito’s by the Park to general manager of both the Park and their new location Vito’s by the Water simultaneously. With tons of new experience under her belt, Dawn tested out other restaurants, from Grants in West Hartford to David Burke Prime at Foxwoods Casino. Not finding the right fit for what she was looking for, Dawn rejoined the Max Group, briefly at Trumbull Kitchen in Hartford then for the next couple of years at Max’s Tavern in Springfield. In the summer of 2016, Dawn is happy to tell anyone willing to listen how she finally found her home with the Carbone’s family. The level of respect and vision of hospitality the two share will inevitably make this a fruitful and long lasting relationship.
