Kelly Paterson

General Manager

Kelly is a manager of many talents – a thoughtful leader, an expert coordinator, and a pro bartender. With more than 14 years in hospitality (11 with 40NORTH) Kelly knows how every part of a restaurant should work in harmony. That's why she focuses on building great teams who give guests an exceptional dining experience they'll remember long after they finish dessert. Kelly found her passion for the restaurant business while earning her degree at the University of Delaware. It started with waiting tables and quickly grew into a career that she loves. A New Jersey native, Kelly loves exploring her home state.
