Greg Ling, who had been executive chef at the Riverhead Project since it opened in May 2011 (and earned three stars from Newsday's Peter Gianotti), has left the restaurant. Taking over for Ling is Roy Wohlars who was, until recently, executive chef at South Edison in Montauk. According to owner Dennis McDermott, Wohlars will introduce a new seafood-focused menu in the next few weeks.

When South Edison opens for the season on May 8, Wohlars’ kitchen shoes will be filled by chefs Alex Pirani and Nikhil Khosla.

The Riverhead Project is at 300 E. Main St., Riverhead, 631-284-9300, theriverheadproject.com
