The CEO and founder of Watch Hill Properties, Peter Catalano, and his wife, Dana Catalano, are "foodies" who know all the best places to dine in the Watch Hill and surrounding areas.

"We have been fortunate to have traveled to many countries including Italy, France, Turkey, Brazil, and Greece, to mention a few, where we experienced the diversities and specialties of the different cultures.  Don't forget the United States, talk about Napa Valley, New York, Miami Beach and other incredible cities."

Dana was born in Milan, Italy and has become a successful chef in her own right after owning the Historic Watch Hill Inn for 25 years before the restaurant and hotel were converted to residential condominiums.

Peter was born in New York City and has traveled with his wife Dana to world class venues for great food and wine, sharing magical moments together. He never enters the kitchen, but enjoys fabulous cuisine in great settings. As a real estate developer and architect, he knows his food, wines, environments, and service. "High demand results in great experiences."

Helmed by Executive Chef Matt Voskuil, COAST offers a seasonal menu that changes nightly and showcases the finest of each season’s products. Their collaboration and proximity to local farms allows them to source the highest quality ingredients of not only the season, but of that day. This creates a distinctive dining experience for guests to the Watch Hill, Rhode Island restaurant and allows them to present the best possible menu every evening.

Inspired from ancient fortified farmhouses that in the Puglia Region of Italy are called “Masseria”. Executive Chef/Co-Owner, Pino Coladonato, grew up on a Farm in Puglia. He was forced to eat whatever was available but soon was tired of bean puree and decided to take matters into his own hands, creating new ways to use the same few ingredients. Now, with limitless ingredients to choose from, fava beans, chickpeas and lentils are still a core element in many of his entrees.
