One of the hottest chefs in Providence has relocated to the suburbs. Kevin Millonzi, the culinary star who made the Atomic Grille and Restaurant Prov shine, has opened Millonzi’s in West Warwick. This is a modern-day neighborhood restaurant serving global cuisine. One of Millonzi’s signature appetizers, the Tuscan Potato Chips with Gorgonzola Gravy is not to be missed. The menu also offers pizza, burgers, sandwiches, pasta and a good selection of entrees, from New York sirloin to ribs with root beer barbecue sauce. And for dessert, I recommend the Baklava Cheesecake.

Siena Cucina and the Savory Grape will host a wine dinner on January 17 at 6:30pm. The all-inclusive cost is $65 per person. Call 885-8850 for details and reservations.

Good news! The Post Office Cafe on Main Street in East Greenwich will reopen after being closed for the past year. The once-popular restaurant is undergoing renovations and is expected to reopen early this year, possibly with a new name.

The culinary program known as Farm + Vine at the Ocean House in Watch Hill is dedicated to the rich bounty of Rhode Island, on land and in the sea. Monthly dinners with different themes will take place in the hotel’s restaurant, Seasons. Culinary weekends, led by experts in the field, are being planned, specially designed to provide unique experiences and to demonstrate the farm-to-table philosophy of the Ocean House. Farm + Vine dinners are set for January 4 and February 1. A local cheese weekend is tentatively scheduled for February 12. Stay tuned for details.
