One of downtown Riverhead’s chicest dining establishments has lost its head chef. 

Monday was executive chef Lia Fallon’s last day at The Riverhead Project, Newsday reported.

But owner Dennis McDermott is staying mum, for now, on who will soon helm his kitchen.

“We’ll announce something later this week,” the restaurateur told “I’ve got something in the works.”

Ms. Fallon joined the downtown Riverhead eatery in June of 2013. A former chef/owner at Amarelle in Wading River and Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport, she will now serve as executive chef at the soon-to-open Brewology in Speonk.
