The Fusaro's Family
Proprietors Tom and Stacy Fusaro are Nantucket residents with deep roots on the Island. Born and raised here, Stacy is a scrimshaw artist and accomplished oil painter who remains active within the community, and can be found smiling at the front door of Fusaro’s greeting guests daily. Tom moved to Nantucket in the early 80′s attracted by the Island’s beautiful natural landscape and quality of life.
Recently, when the economy caused his work as a tradesman to slow down, Tom, who had already earned a reputation for being an incredible cook, decided that it was time to pursue his lifelong passion – preparing and serving delicious homemade Italian food to family and friends. As luck would have it, an ideal location became available, and Fusaro’s Homemade Italian was born.
Enlisting the expertise of his niece, Johnson & Wales University graduate Karen Thureson, who is the talented chef behind the scenes, Tom created Fusaro’s menu inspired by dishes enjoyed by generations of his big, tight-knit Italian family during Sunday dinners. Be sure to look for his Grandmother’s colander that hangs in the restaurant today.
