Chef Granata has clearly established himself as one of Rhode Island's premier culinary talents! From the kitchen of this elegant Federal Hill restaurant he is known for his masterful versions of classical Italian dishes, melded with eye-popping creative fare that amazes restaurant guests on a nightly basis.
His culinary career ironically began more than twenty years ago in the very kitchen he occupies today. From the late eighties through the mid-nineties, Chef Granata served as an Able Apprentice / Sous Chef to noted Camille's Chef Joseph Lovely. It was during this time that he developed a true passion for classical Italian cooking.
In 2002, Chef Granata returned to Camille's and immediately began to restore this renowned restaurant to its place as one of Rhode Island's elite dining spots. Chef Granata's forte is his proven ability to meld flavor combinations without masking a dish's ingredients. He works closely with his Chef de Cuisine and Manager/Sommelier to create and maintain the restaurant's exceptional luncheon, dinner and customized function menus.
Chef Granata has also been featured on popular Rhode Island television shows "The Road Show", "TV Maitre'd", and his very own show "Top of the Hill at Camille's," as well as on the pages of The Providence Journal and numerous other programs. He is a member of the Chef's Association of Rhode Island.
