Review: Rick's Roadhouse

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

Boneheads Wing Bar

An Arctic blast
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.

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.

0607_dining_list.jpg

Review: Meritage

Excellence in East Greenwich
Super-generous margaritas, wood-grilled pizzas, and so much more.
By: JOHNETTE RODRIGUEZ  |  June 04, 2013

0524_food_list.jpg

Review: El Rancho Grande

¡Muy authentico!
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!

Adesso_list11.jpg

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.
