The Warren/East Bay/Providence area is home to some pretty badass folk.

Here’s a brief and probably incomplete shout-out to some of the people responsible for the bits and pieces that make a restaurant.

  • O&G Studio: our partners, friends, and collaborators Jon Glatt and Sara Ossana designed and then fabricated Bywater from the ground up.
  • Sweettrade designed and created all leather goods, including menus, coasters, and check presenters
  • Michael Cevoli took amazing photographs of the food & drink
  • Laura Sorensen of Atelier LKS created our branding for web and print
  • DISH boutique supplied our front-of-house staff with functional, beautiful aprons made in New York by Utility Canvas
  • The artist William Schaff created original works for our State Street facing windows (pictured on Instagram, above)
  • Stock Culinary Goods provided great conversation, tabletop inspiration, and our lovely Opinel knives

Cheers and thanks to these people and many more.
