Meet the Chef

Chef Sai Viswanath holds degrees in culinary arts from the Culinary Institute of America and from hotel school in Madras, India. He has traveled the world refining his cuisine, holding positions as Chef of the renowned Indigo in Mumbai (voted one of the worlds best 60 restaurants by Conde Nast) to Union Square Café in NYC. He taught culinary arts at the New England Culinary Institute before coming to Rhode Island, where he is making a splash at the DeWolf Tavern. Chef Sai is inspired by the beautiful local seafood available here in Rhode Island and has created a unique American menu that shows it off. Chef Sai has mastered many cooking techniques from different parts of the world and has created some incredibly succulent dishes combining local ingredients and flavors with the intensely high heat of the charcoal tandoor. His high standards infuse every aspect of his menu, from the natural lump charcoal used to roast lobster, to his house made pastas and his perfectly grilled native swordfish.
