Lauren Choquette
General Manager

Lauren Choquette strives for nothing but excellence when it comes to running a restaurant. Choquette started with the company in 2012 as bartender at Deck 84. In just three years she was promoted to front of house manager at Burt & Max's where she spent the last three years honing her managerial skills and instilling the values of a Rapoport's restaurant in all of her staff. Recognized for her positive demeanor and professionalism, she was then offered the opportunity to join Rapoport's Restaurant Group's latest concept, Prezzo, as General Manager.

Choquette's managing style has always been very hands on. She is a strong believer in creating a welcoming environment for not only the guests but her staff too. From the back of the house to the front, the staff must be encouraged and set up for success, which is then translated into a great experience for all her guests.
