Lia Fallon, who left Jedediah Hawkins Inn earlier this week (days after receiving a 3½ star review in Newsday), has been named the new executive chef at The Riverhead Project in Riverhead.

The Riverhead Project received 3 stars in Newsday when Greg Ling was the executive chef. Ling left in April and was replaced by Roy Wohlars (formerly of South Edison in Montauk). Wohlars left earlier this month.

(If you enjoy musical chairs: Ling’s next gig was at Trata in Water Mill, but he left earlier this month and was replaced by Sergio Chacat.)

Over the next few weeks, Fallon will be revising the menu at The Riverhead Project. “It’s going to be more whimsical than what I did at Jedediah,” she said. “And we’re also going to institute a raw bar.”

Fallon’s catering company, Lia Fallon Ltd., will also take up residence at The Riverhead Project and all prior contracts will be honored, she said.

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