Pain D'Avignon Welcomes Former La Silhouette Chef, Matthew Tropeano

Matthew Tropeano
Cape Cod just got lucky. Matthew Tropeano, the former chef at La Silhouette in Hell’s Kitchen in New York, is now the executive chef at Pain D’Avignon, a bakery and cafe in Hyannis on Cape Cod.

Pain D’Avignon is known for its marvelous breads and has counter service 7 AM-4 PM, Wednesday through Sunday. The French cafe is open for dinner Wednesday through Sunday, beginning at 6 PM. With his classical French training, Tropeano plans to instill a stronger focus with that cuisine in mind. Cocktails, wine and beer are served in the cafe.

This is a kind of homecoming for Tropeano, who grew up in Randolph, MA. Tropeano spent eight years at La Grenouille in New York, where he was promoted to executive chef. There, he received a three-star rating from The New York Times.

Tropeano started in the restaurant business as a busboy for Primavera in Millis. Welcome home to chef Tropeano and his family.
