Birch Restaurant
200 Washington Street
Providence, RI 02903
United States
Ph :
401-272-3105

We've taken the name Birch from childhood nostalgia. Pennsylvania dutch-style beer was something we both loved growing up. In the same way the Birch tree starts from it's roots, we take a "from the roots up" approach to food, drink, and our guests. The intimacy of the restaurant provides a relaxed, comfortable, environment with warm professional service, paired with a cuisine that is creative and modern; expressing the best of New England's seasonal environment.

Our Approach

At birch, Ben uses his traditional training and non-traditional experiences to craft an accessible and environmentally engaging cuisine. A graduate of Johnson & Wales University, Ben’s drive to learn has taken him as far as Copenhagen, where he apprenticed at the peerless Noma. During his time spent at The Dorrance, he was twice nominated for Food and Wine's People's Best New Chef and the restaurant was named one of Bon Appetit’s “Top 50 Best New Restaurants of 2012”. Ben was nominated for the James Beard Foundation’s Rising Star Chef of the Year award in conjunction with the restaurant being nominated for Best New Restaurant. Previously, while serving as Chef de Cuisine at La Laiterie at Farmstead, Ben was the only chef nominated as one of “11 to watch in 2011” by the Providence Journal.
