In 2018, Chef/Owner Christian D'Agostino 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 Wakefield.
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 both of the Tavern on Main Restaurants, 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, both Tavern on Main restaurants have it all.
