In our constant mission to bring new concepts and food to the West End and Providence, the boys and girls at north are crazy excited to announce that we will be opening a bakery this spring on the corner of Battey and West Fountain Streets! Kelly Dull has joined our team and will be heading up the pastry program at the space. It will be a non-traditional American bakery, in the spirit of north, open from the morning until early evening. An array of sweet and savory baked goods will be available - scones, cookies, breads, granola, wedding and non wedding cakes, either packed to go or to be eaten at our tables. We will also be offering full service coffee, produced by local roasters and prepared by dedicated baristas. The menu will be rotating as we go through the different growing periods, sourcing locally when we can, but with a focus on always being delicious - if a bit different.
north is a nontraditional American restaurant at 3 Luongo Memorial Square in Providence RI. It opened in September of 2012 and has garnered praise and criticism from lots of folks. It is run by a group of friends and is open for dinner seven night a week.
Kelly has lived and worked in various places all over the country, including NYC, Cleveland, and LA. She feels incredibly lucky to have learned from some of the best chefs, pastry chefs, and cake decorators in the country, including Wendy Kromer of Martha Stewart Weddings fame. Kelly most recently worked in Chicago running the kitchen at a well-known bakery and teaching cooking classes on the side.
James is the cook/owner/plumber/garbageman/shoveler/gopher/cat wrangler of north. He most recently worked at Nick’s on Broadway where he developed their in house bread program, among many other jobs, and the Red Fez where he was the head of hot dog R&D. In 2008 he helped open momofuku ko in NYC, and a year later he helped open Momofuku Milk Bar with Christina Tosi as their bread baker.
