Nicole Tramonte

Nicole Tramonte and her husband Anthony bought Catania Bakery, at 1404 North Capitol Street NW, in 1978.  The bakery was established by the Caruso family in 1932, and Grace Caruso stayed on for six months after the Tramonte purchase to teach Nicole the business.  Nicole's grandson Dave grew up in the bakery, and still lives only a few blocks away, where, after serving four years in the Marines, he teaches jujitsu and continues his university studies.  (6/12, 7/12)
