Tom Grella, Owner & Executive Chef of Prelude poses with Chamber president Stacey Bruzzese as she presents the Business of the Month Award

It is with great pleasure that The Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce recognizes Prelude with the honor of Business of the Month for June 2015 for their strong support of small business owners, the local community and the “chamber family.”

Prelude is being recognized by the Chamber due to Chef Grella’s continued support of local business and non-profit organizations. Using his culinary skills, Grella has supported many fundraising events and charitable efforts by donating cooking demonstrations, prepared foods and meeting space within his restaurant. In addition, Grella regularly supports local events with donations of gift certificates for raffles.

Prelude is a small Restaurant located on the triple border of Methuen, Salem NH and Haverhill. Owners Tom Grella, Executive Chef and General Manager, and Andy Tucker created this tasty gastro-fusion style restaurant back in 2012. Offering the highest quality dishes and an outstanding selection of cocktails, fine wines and craft beers, it has quickly become a local favorite.Prelude-tables

The restaurant is small but cozy, offering 52 seats including 10 at the bar, 8 seats at high-tops behind the bar, and booths and tables in the dining room. Small parties can be accommodated and reservations are encouraged.

That honor is announced during the annual breakfast which has been scheduled for February 5, 2016.
