Amy Mitchell’s New York adventure started almost 20 years ago in late August of 2001. She bought a one-way ticket and moved here from Los Angeles, sight unseen. Up until then, her experience in hospitality was in casual dining. Moving to New York inspired her to learn more and move into fine dining. She fell in love with wine working in steak houses. She managed to score a position as a cellar rat, in one of those steak houses, where she helped the wine director with his weekly inventory and was paid in wine. This motivated her to take wine classes with the WSET to expand her knowledge. After obtaining the WSET advanced certificate, she was hired for her first sommelier position at Hakkasan NYC. Within 10 months, she was promoted into the buying position. She went on to work for Veritas and Indian Accent NYC as a sommelier. She is currently working on the WSET Level 4 to obtain the Diploma in Wine. She is honored and excited to join the Junoon NYC family.
