If you've been wondering what Neath Pal has been up to since he closed Neath's (where Bacaro is now), read his abbreviated bio, taken word-for-word from the Johnson & Wales website:

"An instructor in the College of Culinary Arts, Chef Neath Pal specializes in international and Asian cuisines.

Chef Pal studied at France’s prestigious LaVarenne cooking school. After working in several Parisian restaurants, he returned home to Rhode Island, where he spent a year at Al Forno’s. From there he helped establish L’Epicureo, which quickly gained national attention, as well as Grappa, another celebrated bistro.

In 1998 Pal opened Neath's New American Bistro. Bryan Miller, former food critic of the New York Times, praised the restaurant as a "giant leap eastward" for the Providence food scene. Blending French and Asian influences, the eclectic menu highlighted the flavors of Pal’s native Cambodia, such as coconut milk, lemongrass, Kaffir lime and Thai basil.

After nearly a decade, Chef Pal closed his successful restaurant to spend time with his children. In 2008, he joined JWU as an instructor and in 2010 was given the Outstanding First Year Teacher Award."

Anyway, Neath and Bill Russell of Westport Rivers Vineyard ( are getting together next Monday, September 10 for one of Gracie's Star Chef dinners (194 Washington Street, Providence  401-272-7811)

It's pricey at $100 but it should be fun and delicious. 

Call 401-272-7811
