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.
