  • Read a review about our Wine Dinner Series event:
    "The Providence Marriott Downtown has a great way to offer "out of the box" ideas to enjoy its restaurant.My husband, some family members and I attended 2 Passport to Wine Dinners at Bluefin Grille, one in October and the other in November. The wine was amazing and Chef Chris did a wonderful job with pairing delicious food to go along with each of the wines. The wait staff along with the way the room is set up make for a relaxing and intimate evening. We have been to these types of evenings elsewhere and comparably Bluefin really does a fabulous job! We look forward to the next installment on January 22!"

A Little Bit About our Executive Chef Franco Paterno:

Franco Paterno was born and raised in southern Italy in a region known for its pristine waters, and continual sunshine. He was heavily influenced by his family's business which managed growing and production of figs, olives, grapes for wine making, as well as many other fruits and vegetables. Franco immigrated to Rhode Island as a young teen, and began working in a small family owned Italian restaurant, where he was introduced to the restaurant industry.
Chef Paterno has repositioned the hotel's dining choices from a meat and potatoes buffet to a la carte fine dining menu offerings. The award-winning Bluefin Grille has a casual elegance atmosphere; serving locally inspired and responsibly caught seafood. AQUA, Providence's only poolside restaurant and resort style lounge has been recognized by Rhode Island Monthly as the state's Best Outdoor Lounge. Chef Paterno is a regular guest on the Rhode Show, has won the People Choice Award for the Best Chili at the Rhode Island Chili Festival and he is featured in Providence Journal, Rhode Island Monthly, Providence Phoenix, GoLocalProv.com, Providence Monthly as well as Bon Appetit Magazine.
