Review: Jim’s Dock
A succulent summertime tradition
There are some traditional celebrations, like the Fourth of July or Secretary's Day, that you comply with out of habit or generosity.

Review: Hourglass Brasserie
Pamper your palate
Providence Restaurant Weeks (which continue through July 21; view the list at goprovidence.com/RW) is a sweet deal for several reasons.

Review: Italian Corner
Destination dining (just one night a week)
Please don't read this review. Really, I'm begging you. If you do, I won't be able to get another plate of pasta at Italian Corner for the next few months.

Review: Small Axe Café
Enchanting dining in Charlestown
Anyone who has lived in southern Rhode Island since the '70s, as we have, has almost surely discovered the then-hippie/now retro-hippie enclave of the Fantastic Umbrella Factory.

Review: Iron Works Tavern
Fittingly hearty fare (and much more)
They damn well better serve steaks at the Iron Works Tavern.
| May 29, 2012
Review: The ROI
Comfort food for kings and commoners
Anyone who liked DownCity Diner when Paul Shire opened it in 1990 or Oak when the chef was in charge there will love his newest restaurant, the ROI.

A welcome addition to Thai restaurant ranks
Another Thai restaurant in Providence? Well, since Lim's has solid offerings that can stand up to comparisons, maybe they have a shot.

Review: Cuban Revolution
Viva la ropa vieja!
As restaurant themes go, there must be some odder than that of Cuban Revolution.

Funky and chic in Narragansett
When you walk in to SoHo, an elaborate panorama of Manhattan skyscrapers catches your eye above the bar.
| March 27, 2012
Review: Beach Rose Café
Simple delights in Wickford
When a foodie friend (whose bedtime reading is cookbooks) recommended Beach Rose Café, I immediately took notice.
| March 14, 2012
Review: Mario’s Risto/Bar
Excellent dining in Knightsville
We don't usually think of Mario's when we're passing through Knightsville.
| March 07, 2012
Perfection, earthbound and rarefied
As national press has informed us in recent years, Rhode Island has certainly, and deservedly, earned a reputation as one of the prime culinary hotspots in the country, so it has plenty of fine restaurants vying for of top honors.
| February 28, 2012
Review: Neo Pizza
Award-winning pies (and much more)
In today's stressful economy, it's a boost to find an eatery with 10 dinners under $10, and another two at $10.50 and $10.75.
| February 22, 2012
Review: Cresta Bar & Ristorante
Diamond in the rough
Cresta Bar & Ristorante, the new restaurant in Pawtucket, is really classing up the place.
| February 15, 2012
Review: Mill's Tavern
An elegant prix fixe experience
When a restaurant has survived eight-plus years on the Providence scene, you know it must be doing something (or several things) right.
| February 27, 2012
Close your eyes and it's Tuscany
I can't imagine that anyone returning from a visit to Tuscany fails to wax rhapsodic about the cuisine, perhaps as soon as the customs inspection.
| January 31, 2012
Review: Canfield House
Not just for robber barons
Interesting atmosphere in the lobby. A wealth of surrounding wood paneling, an Art Deco tasseled lamp on the host station, and the pièce de résistance: a tall roulette wheel, beckoningly still.
| January 25, 2012
Review: Vine Yard East
Come for the wine, stay for the food
The spelling of this six-month-old restaurant's name indicates one of its primary draws: an emphasis on wine.
| January 17, 2012
Review: Ralph’s Bull & Claw Tavern
So much more than pub food
Time was, a place that called itself a tavern purveyed meals as well as drinks to weary travelers. Nowadays at most such places you might snag some buffalo chicken wings at best.
| January 10, 2012
Review: El Tapatio
Transported to the border
Although El Tapatio is a full-fledged Mexican restaurant, with distinct Tex-Mex and Cal-Mex accents, it has certainly adapted to one Rhode Island tradition: bountiful portions.
| January 03, 2012
The taste of Sicily in Glendale
All jokes about Foster/Glocester weather reports aside, the village of Glendale is also very much off-the-beaten-track of the Greater Providence metro area.
