Chef Brian O’Donnell

Brian O'Donnell is the chef & owner of Bywater, a new restaurant in the historic working waterfront of Warren, Rhode Island. He started his culinary career in Pittsburgh but in the unlikeliest turn of events found himself head chef at Cafe Nuovo in Providence where he developed his passion for sustainable seafood and local food culture. Now the owner of his own joint with his wife Katie, he can forage, fish, and cook whatever the coastal community has to offer. Bywater is a new world interpretation of old world ingredients and techniques, drawing on the traditions of Rhode Island's seafaring folk as well Brian's food history: from Clonbur in Galway, Ireland (he's the youngest of 13 children), to the Pennsylvania Dutch influence of Pittsburgh, to his current home on the New England shore. 


Tickets are $75 per person and must be purchased in advance. Seating is limited so make your reservation early.
