Review: West Side Diner
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.

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.

Excellence in East Greenwich
Super-generous margaritas, wood-grilled pizzas, and so much more.
| June 04, 2013
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.
| May 21, 2013
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!
| May 13, 2013
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.
| April 09, 2013
Review: Leo’s Ristorante
An Italian tradition in Bristol
Over the decades, Leo's Pizza became a Bristol staple, after Panteleone Mancieri (aka "Leo") opened it in 1948.

Hot spot, Jamaican style
The Half Way Tree
Among the virtues of Jamaica, which include the glow of its sunshine and friendly people, is the island's cuisine.
| March 06, 2013
Review: Flan y Ajo
Little place, little dishes
It's a tiny place, which is appropriate.
| February 26, 2013
Review: Golden Chopstix
Some yummy dim sum
Since the Chinese invented gunpowder, the toothbrush, and paper money, we might as well also credit them with Spanish tapas and Scandinavian smörgåsbord.
| February 12, 2013
Review: Bonefish Grill
A well-polished and very tasty link
There are chains that give chain restaurants a bad name, that think earned popularity can be franchised.
