Arnold Kruck returned to the Park Avenue Club in February, 2001. He was instrumental in opening the club in 1994 as a sous chef and always wanted to return believing in the mission of the Park Avenue Club and Park Avenue Foundation. His career has taken him to the AT&T Learning Center in Basking Ridge where serving corporate CEO’s was commonplace. His next stop took him to the Hilton at Short Hills where he helped hone his skills as Banquet Chef and earning the Star Ledger’s “Best Brunch” in New Jersey. Arnold then moved on to Westchester and worked at the Tarrytown House in Tarrytown, N.Y. as the Executive Sous Chef. Since coming back to the Park Avenue Club, Arnold has adopted the mission statement of the Park Avenue Club.
A graduate of Johnson & Wales University, he has been honored by the Boys Scouts of America “Good Scout Award”, Share Our Strength, PG Chambers School and JBWS Grand Tastings for his continued charitable work.
