We're on a series of introducing our lovely staff to everyone. This week we'd like to introduce Amy. The fantastic server at Kitchen ZINC who is always smiling and keeping spirits high.
Name : Amy
Where are you from? : Somerville, MA
What do you love about working at Kitchen ZINC?
I personally love working somewhere that is customer focused and allows me to really connect with my tables. My favorite part of waitressing is being able to meet and talk with new people throughout the day. Kitchen Zinc values those connections and I'm encouraged to be myself and make them.
When you’re not at Kitchen ZINC, what do you do in your free time?
I've picked up a lot of hobbies over the years! I play a lot of board games and video games with my friends and boyfriend. The past 5 years I've been involved in different Dungeons and Dragons campaigns (really!), and some nights I just spend time knitting on the couch with my cat Mickey.
What is your favorite pie from the menu?
Either the Fig and Speck or Sausage depending on if I want something sweet or spicy. The Fig is just perfectly made with the fresh speck and arugula, I could eat it everyday. However, the Sausage has got such great heat and the broccoli rabe on it is delicious! Really I'm obsessed with our gluten free crust which we get from Still Riding Foods. You're so limited when you have celiac and our gluten free pizzas actually taste like PIZZA. Hands down my favorite gluten free pies.
Are you a beer or wine person with your pizza? Which beer or wine at KZ currently is your favorite? Why?
I'm more of a wine person. I definitely think our Rosso Toscano by Scarpetta is my favorite. I like reds to have some dryness and the Toscano has the perfect amount while still being light enough to drink with such a filling food as pizza. Although, the Scarpetta Prosecco we have by the can is my favorite post dinner cocktail.
What are you looking forward to this year?
My boyfriend, Matt, and I are joining some friends in Boston for a video game convention PAX East! We are also traveling to California this summer for a good friends wedding. I love to travel and visit with friends and family so we do plan small weekend trips over the summer as well! It should be a lot of fun to reconnect with people and experience new things.
