Brent Kaufman was there the day Ciao Bella opened and has been there ever since. He and Ciao Bella owner, Joe Cimino, are long time college friends.
One would think that Brent Kaufman was born to the job. He actually arrived at his current station in life through a long, winding road that began back in Brooklyn, New York. He attended Midwood High School in, Brooklyn, the same high school as Woody Allen. Brent was an 'All American running back at Midwood. Midwood won the high school city championship in 1964/1965 with Brent as its star running back. He won the scoring title and made All American along with the great Calvin Hill who went on to star at Yale and in the pro's. Brent was offered 40 college scholarships his senior year. He accepted a full four-year scholarship to the University of Rhode Island.
Brent was a star running back at the University of Rhode Island (as he had been in high school.) He was 'all-east' one week in college ahead of former Miami Dolphin great Larry Czonka. Brent was named 'Jewish athlete of the year' in Rhode Island and received an award from Boston Celtics patriarch Arnold 'Red" Auerbach. After college, Brent had a tryout with the New York Giants football organization. He broke his shoulder that year and put his football career behind him.
After football, Brent spent three years as the assistant social director and front-of-the -house at the Deauville Cabana in Brooklyn, New York catering to an upscale clientele which included pianist Peter Nero.
...
Brent moved on to become Assistant Social Director at the Laurels Country Club in the Catskills. He spent two years there before moving to Boston and teaming up with his old college friend, famed Boston restaurant and nightclub owner Joe Cimino. Brent had a backgammon club and ran tournaments at Cimino's nightclub, Zelda's in Boston for two years.
Brent left Boston and spent the next four years working as assistant cruise director on cruise ships to Bermuda, the Caribbean and South America and traveling around the world. After the cruise ships, Brent moved to St. Martin for approximately ten years where he was owner of two clubs, one at the famous Mullet Bay resort, Club Calabash, on the Dutch side and the second, L'Aventure, on the French side of St. Martin. Both clubs catered to worldwide jet-setters and well known movie stars.
Brent finally moved back to Boston to work again with Joe Cimino to open Ciao Bella Restaurant.
