Congratulations to Executive Chef Jennifer Backman from The Mooring who was recently named winner in Edible Rhody’s annual Local Hero awards poll. The magazine selects six winners from a distinguished collection of chefs, farmers, artisans and shops – all of whom positively influence and evolve the food in our Rhode Island community.  We are proud to announce that Jen has won in the Chef/Restaurant category!

We are extremely proud of her accomplishment and congratulate her on making such an impact on our community. To be honored as the best in our abundant restaurant community is truly an amazing achievement!  We thank Chef for making such an impact on our restaurant, our employee owners and our community!
