Doing diner dining proud
The West Side Diner is worth checking out for its gleaming Art Deco ambience even if you’re not hungry.

Review: Viva Mexico! Cantina & Grill
Head Downcity for south of the border goodness
Viva Mexico! indeed. Both the salutation and the “Cantina & Grill” of that name, however self-congratulatory the exclamation point.

Diverse delights, from sushi to steaks
Nami means wave, as the design of the graceful logo of the latest Japanese restaurant in Providence indicates.

What. no filet flambe?
Bars are where many restaurants make most of their money, so a lot of places would rather impress you with their cosmopolitans than their cacciatores.

Review: Becky's BBQ
Talk about pigging out!
What more fitting occasion to pig out than over pork barbecue? And where better to indulge than at a place that goes to the trouble, and takes the time, to do it right?

Review: 2 Pauls' City Grille
Comfort food in style
In the Rhode Island tradition of identifying a place by saying it’s where someplace else used to be, 2 Pauls’ City Grille is where Vine Yard East used to be — and Joseph’s and Cattails and a list of other restaurants.

Review: Don Jose Tequilas
Not your ordinary tamales
Come on, admit it. The best thing about some mediocre Mexican restaurants is their margaritas. But Don José Tequilas is not a mediocre Mexican restaurant.

Review: Circe Restaurant & Bar
A worthy origin story
It was sad to see the landmark restaurant DownCity close its doors in 2011, another victim of the lingering economic downturn. But those in the business are as optimistic as they are persistent, so nine months ago a new restaurant opened in its place, and it looks like Circe is a worthy follow-up.

A hoppy history lesson
Plus, craft sales keep booming
It all starts with Anchor Steam. The storied brew was saved from extinction when Fritz Maytag bought the brewery in 1965 — inauspiciously launching the craft beer industry and establishing its benchmarks: small, independent, and traditional.

Review: Harry's Bar & Burger
Maxi-bar and mini-burgers
Are you ready for a Pig Pile Burger? A M.O.A.B.? How about chocolate crack?

Review: The Sea Goose
No roast goose, but plenty else
You might think that Rhode Island needs another seafood restaurant like Providence needs another pizzeria, but you’ll change your mind if you check out the Sea Goose.

Review: The Bike Stop Cafe
Great pizza and so much more
"Follow your bliss” certainly took hold with the Bike Stop Cafe’s co-owner/culinary head Brendan Roan. He’d cooked all over the state for the last couple decades and loved feeding folks, but his not-so-secret second passion was bicycling.

The Philly pilgrimage
Plus, the splendid American Craft Beer Fest
We’re usually all about the local breweries and the locally-available stock in this space, but sometimes we get in the Kia and head for beer adventures across state lines.
