Meet the Owner

Mark Tansey

Growing up in a large family, chef/owner Mark Tansey fondly remembers Sundays as being "snack" day.  His family would prepare such tantalizing specialties such as a Ritz cracker topped with peanut butter and a slice of hot dog, olive cream cheese and sardines on a cracker.  Those days sparked a culinary curiosity in him.  Imagine that!

He worked in the restaurant industry in high school and through his education at Johnson & Wales.  Mark graduated from Johnson & Wales in 1980.  He purchased Partners Restaurant in 1984 at the young age of 24 years old.  He has been going strong ever since.

Mark has hosted his own local cooking show, "Continental Cuisine", a talk radio show called the "Latest Dish" and has participated in many cooking demos and seminars for The Big E,  Angy's Tortellini, Big Y Foods, various clubs and organizations.

Mark is always looking at trends,  recipes and more to make your experience at Partners Restaurant, Partners @ the Cup or at your catering event a satisfying one.
