Nicole ("Nici") Zuba - Manager | Proprietor
Nici's tenure at Bentleys spans over two decades, and in that time, as you might well imagine, she has worn many hats. A favorite on the bar and in our hearts, Nici was raised right here in Woodstock. She is an excellent event coordinator with a fine eye for even the smallest detail. She lives in Woodstock with her young son, and inexplicably, is a Yankee fan. Contact her for all your special event needs.
John G.F. Ruggieri-Lam | Maria L. Freddura
John (middle left) is originally from Providence, RI and thereafter Boston, MA where he received his education in Business Management and Law. He began visiting Woodstock in the late 1980's and soon met David and Bill - the two founding partners of Bentleys Restaurant. John continued to visit Woodstock over the years, and eventually bought a vacation home in Barnard. Maria became John's partner in the vacation home, "Stonewall Lodge", in 2011. The opportunity to acquire Bentleys was a completely unexpected development that led to a broadening of their business relationship. John is married to a dancer with the Boston Ballet, John D. Lam (far left), and enjoys travel, music, horses, and gatherings with his close knit family and friends.
Maria, and her husband, Paul, (far right) own The Daily Catch Restaurants in Boston. The mother of seven sons, Maria is a bonafide force of nature with the kind of no-nonsense business acumen that was no doubt born of necessity. Seven sons! The logistics alone boggle the mind.
