Tavern on Main is a casual food and beverage establishment serving a wide variety of patrons by offering an eclectic yet easily approachable menu, wine and beverage list delivered with warm, smart and focused service. Our “all day” menu contains unique takes on classic comfort foods, house made and artisanal items as well as international and local favorites. Our beverage program embodies a tight and succinct wine list, a craft beer program fitting with local, regional, and national trends, and a signature cocktail list using the freshest possible ingredients, locally sourced and classic spirits using our own infusions.
While Tavern on Main will offer brunch all day, every day, on weekends we will be opening the doors a bit earlier to accommodate the breakfast crowd. Additionally, late night food is served every night of the week.
COMING FULL CIRCLE
Chef/Owner Christian D'Agostino has returned to the very kitchen where he began his career. In 1986, at the age of 14, Christian got into the restaurant industry as a dishwasher at 195 Main St. when it was still the Italian Village Restaurant and owned by his mentor, Antonio Mollo.
Christian realized that the restaurant business was where he belonged and quickly was promoted through the ranks to Executive Chef, all the while gaining a degree through the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. Christian went on to gain valuable experience as an executive chef on multiple cruise ships, then delved into the restaurant scene in Fargo, ND. Five years later, Christian found himself part owner in 4 restaurants and a catering company. At that point an opportunity presented itself in Wakefield, RI. His career had come full circle, both geographically and professionally, when Christian decided to come back home and start up a restaurant all his own, Tavern on Main.
As homage to his mentor, some of Antonio’s original recipes can be found on the menu in addition to an assortment of handmade sausages inspired by Christian’s brother, Kyle and his company D’Agostino Sausage Empire in Birmingham, Alabama.
When it comes to the service at Tavern on Main, everyone is treated as family. So, whether you are looking for a quick lunch, a delicious dinner with the family, or a fun night out with friends, Tavern on Main has it all.
