Dining in Rhode Island

... with Board member, Lawrence Andrade

(Please note: these are taken from staff suggestions and are not paid advertisements)

Rhode Island has some exceptional restaurants which make for a memorable dining experience. We've asked our staff and volunteers to recommend their favorites for your dining pleasure while in the Ocean State.

 

Lawrence J. Andrade, RIIFF Board Member, has reviewed these recommendations and compiled a list that he believes will not disappoint. Larry has also personnally been to each of the establishments listed and will vouch for their quality.

 

Within the last few months, the number of local chefs and restaurateurs using the social networking site Twitter has grown exponentially. Savvy restaurants use the 140-character Tweets to spread the word on special offers, new dishes, changes in hours, upcoming events, etc. In short, anything that helps generate buzz.

 

Here are a handful of food-related Tweeters we're following at RIIFF:

 

Johnny Rockets @JohnnyRockets1
Inside Scoop @InsideScoopRI
Persimmon @PersimmonRI
Cuban Revolution @CubanRevolution
Gracie's @GraciesProv
ENO @enofinewines
Aspire @AspireProv
The Savory Grape @TheSavoryGrape

 

Please email Larry if you have any suggestions or feedback.

Local Reviewers comments Review in RI Monthly

 

GENERAL INFO. Open Wed.–Sat. 7 a.m.–3 p.m.; Sun. 8 a.m.–3 p.m. Dinner served Wed.–Sat. 5:30–10 p.m. All major credit cards. Wheelchair accessible. Street parking. Reservations recommended for dinner but are not accepted for breakfast or lunch.
ATMOSPHERE Stainless steel abounds as do sleek wooden chairs and modern white dinnerware shaped like fluid triangles and protozoa. Napkins are still disposable, but the paper is now quadruple-ply.
SOUND LEVEL Mornings and afternoons are frenetic, but the dinner crowd is quite sedate. Tables are close together, so don’t plan on selling national secrets.
RECOMMENDED DISHES Spicy shrimp, sirloin with potato cakes, grilled yellow-fin tuna, white chocolate mousse.
WINE LIST A dozen by the glass, as well as a good variety by the half-bottle and bottle, most of which are under $40. Beer is also available.
PRICE RANGE Dinner: appetizers $5–$12; entrees $15–$23; desserts $6. A six-course tasting menu is also available for a pricey $75, but a duo of diners will receive twelve different dishes, making it an investment-worthy meal.
