Chef Lee Sonsky
Fortunately for guests, Chef Lee made the decision while in school to change from pre-med to culinary. After getting his start in a small Italian restaurant in Long Island, then venturing to the prestigious Breakers in Palm Beach, FL for 12 years, Chef Sonsky has joined the Newport Restaurant Group family in the kitchen at Hemenway's. It is here, that chef pulls from his natural love of food for inspiration, creating dishes that ignite the feelings evoked when enjoying wholesome and comforting food. More importantly, Chef makes it a point to form and build strong relationships with local vendors, to not only support local business, but to receive the freshest ingredients in Rhode Island.
