Chris Gould ’02 is the chef and owner of Central Provisions, located on the corner of Fore and Dana Street in Portland, Maine. Central Provisions is well known for its scrumptious small plates and winner of the prestigious James Beard Award, given only to the “Best Restaurants in America”.

We can’t wait to see what he will be cooking up at his second restaurant which he hopes to have open sometime this December or January.

Gould and his wife Paige recently purchased a new space at 182 Ocean Ave., where they plan to open an Italian restaurant. Rumor has it that they will be adding a bar, banquette seating along the walls and have plans for a communal table to create a real neighborhood vibe.
