Willy's

Just the basics, thank you
Sometimes in this world of culinary over-achievement, of luaus and foie gras and molecular gastronomy, sometimes we simply want to chomp into a nice, juicy hamburger or hot dog.

TwoTenOyster Bar & Grill

A raw bar with a view
One of the appealing features of living in a place called the Ocean State is that there are plenty of water-view restaurants.

Review: Toro Restaurant

And the crowd shouts "Ole!"
I don’t know about you, but $5 appetizers all day Thursdays — not just at appie hour — can make me a regular.

Review: The Rathskeller

A welcome resurrection in Charlestown
One of the great things about an unpretentious place like Rhode Island is that every once in a while you come across an inexpensive restaurant — maybe even a pub — that serves fine food without all the fine dining folderol.

Review: Jade Cricket

Way above the usual Chinese cuisine
There are two seemingly contradictory facts about Chinese cuisine and this country. One, everybody likes it. And two, so many Chinese restaurants are mediocre.

Review: Chomp Kitchen and Drinks

Burger and sandwich supremacy in Warren
Chomp Kitchen and Drinks may be off the beaten path, but the rapidly developing legion of fans are just about beating down the door to get in and experience the fresh and inventive offerings.

Review: Los Andes

A bounty of Bolivian and Peruvian delights
There is a certain seraphic smile that spreads onto the face of someone approaching a favorite restaurant that he hasn’t indulged in for a long while.

Review: Rick's Roadhouse

You know where their heart is
Ah, the sweet, tooth-tingling charms of barbecue.

Destination dining in. . . downtown West Warwick?

Review: Rasa

Essential Indian cuisine
As if lovers of Indian food weren’t doing well enough around here with such places as Kabob and Curry on Thayer Street and Rasoi in Pawtucket, owner Sanjiv Dhar has opened another restaurant, Rasa, in East Greenwich.

Review: Figidini Wood Fire Eatery

Peerless pizza, and much more
Wood-fire grilling has become so popular in recent years that we can expect it soon in Chinese restaurants.

Review: ChopHouse Grille

Get there before the lines form
Vegans and vegetarians, step aside for a moment. The hunters are returning in greater numbers, gently pushing aside the gatherers.

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.

Review: Nami

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

Review: KitchenBar

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.
