Welcome to Providence Bar & Eatery!  Owner, Kimberly Buchholz, and Executive Chef, David Pinto, moved back to Kim's hometown of Oakley to open the restaurant in June 2013.  Both graduated from the well-known culinary school,  Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, where they had been living for the past several years.  Kimberly's expertise is Restaurant & Hospitality Management, while David's specialties are Culinary and Food Marketing.  Since graduating from "JWU", their dream has been to own their own restaurant, where these two young entrepreneurs could utilize their combined culinary educations.

While designing the restaurant, Kimberly wanted to keep the warm, hometown feel of a small restaurant with a full bar, while bringing a culinary flair to good old fashioned home cooking.  Together, they have created a menu that combines local fare, fresh ingredients and David's own culinary secrets which make the food fresh and flavorful.
