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

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.

Excellence in East Greenwich
Super-generous margaritas, wood-grilled pizzas, and so much more.

The best beers of summer
Local pros pick the season's top brews and craft beer in cans, and share some warm-weather drinking stories
'Tis the season when beers get lighter and crisper. But summer brews don't have to be bland and watery. The better beer makers pack an abundance of subtle flavors into their golden liquid, from blonde ales to lagers to wheat ales to pilseners.

Review: El Rancho Grande
Having a yen Mexican food and limiting yourself to tacos and burritos is like craving French food and choosing french fries.

Review: Trattoria Longo
Every dish done just right
Preparing most Italian dishes doesn't require the complexity of organic chemistry. Fresh ingredients, a good recipe, well-timed cooking, and ecco! Benissimo!

Review: Adesso On the Hill
As special as ever
Adesso is now "On the Hill," as opposed to off of Thayer Street, where the marvelous restaurant was located until closing in 2005.
