Business Spotlight: Sonoma Bistro and Wine Bar

Sonoma Bistro and Wine Bar is a 200-seat casual fine dining eatery in North Kingstown, RI. Christian and Kerrie Lanoie opened Sonoma as a couple who both had made a living in the restaurant industry and wanted to share their love for food and people in a family friendly atmosphere. They have now had eight years of success living out their dream!

They consider their guests like family, and love being part of the tight knit community in North Kingstown. “The community looks out for one another,” they told us, “We love getting involved and being part of that.”

Christian and Kerrie used Washington Trust to process their PPP loan. “Washington Trust helped us as a small business finding our way through the COVID-19 pandemic with securing a PPP loan and navigating the process,” they told us.
