Review: Bonefish Grill

A well-polished and very tasty link

Review: Uncle Jo Jo’s Pizza & Pasta

Review: Jigger’s Hill & Harbour Diner

Delightful fare in a classic setting
It's been a long time since we've been to Jigger's, and in the meantime, it sat empty for almost a year, with new owners Steve and Karie Head cleaning and renovating this jewel of an official Worcester Dining Car.

Beer to go: Where to find the good stuff

Bottles and cans and just clap your hands
In April, we columnized about building the Best Beer Store. We trumpeted shopper-friendly displays, well-chosen stock (bigger is not always better), making new releases easy to find, mix-a-six options, and fresh stock.

Review: Ella’s

Excellence worth the price
In the Rhode Island tradition, Ella's can be described as the place where Capizzano's Restaurant used to be, prominently located. But Ella's has been earning a name of its own, and a recent visit made clear why.

Review: Malt

Pretty fancy for a pub
Wisely, a new addition to the Newport dining scene is starting off modestly; it's little more than a pub, but enough more that it shows good promise and even some adventurousness. Malt opened this summer with little fanfare but soon earned a growing fan base.
