Durk’s Barbecue Review – Providence, RI

Durk’s Barbecue Review – Providence, RI

Good barbecue in the Northeastern U.S. is hard to find. It’s like to trying to find a real New York style bagel anywhere outside of New York. That’s why I’m always excited when I hear about new openings in or around Rhode Island and Massachusetts. In this case, Durk’s Bar-B-Q opened up on Thayer Street … Continue reading

Wara Wara Ramen Restaurant Review

Wara Wara Ramen Restaurant Review

Wara Wara opened around February 2016 in Providence and there was a lot of buzz about this new Japanese restaurant specializing in ramen and tapas. With so few options in Providence to enjoy good ramen, I knew I needed to get over there and see what Wara Wara had to offer. Usually, I run for … Continue reading

The Classic Cafe Review – Providence, RI

The Classic Cafe Review – Providence, RI

While hunting for somewhere to grab a quick breakfast in Providence and oddly finding so many of our usual haunts closed, my wife and I decided to visit the Classic Cafe. She had been there before, but it was my first time visiting this diner-like restaurant and I’m glad I did. The Classic Cafe 865 … Continue reading

Camelia of Istanbul Review – East Providence, RI

Camelia of Istanbul Review – East Providence, RI

On the same day by sheer coincidence my wife and I both received recommendations from colleagues at work to try Camelia of Istanbul in East Providence, RI for kabobs.

Enoteca Umberto – Providence, RI

I’ve said it before that despite its reputation, it’s actually hard to find great food on Federal Hill aside from a few restaurants. Luckily, a relatively new addition to Federal Hill in Providence, makes me eat those words (pun intended)! A friend who ate at Enoteca Umberto before suggested that my wife and I meet her … Continue reading

Broadway Bistro – Providence, RI

Broadway Bistro – Providence, RI

It took about 12 years for me to reconnect with a friend from high school because she happened to coincidentally befriend my girlfriend at the time (now my wife) during their medical residency. As a result of these new connections made and old connections revitalized, we’ve had the benefit of dining out from time to time … Continue reading

Ichigo Ichie – East Providence, RI

Ichigo Ichie – East Providence, RI

There are a lot of mixed reviews about Ichigo Ichie. I’ve been there a few times and I am also unsure of how I feel about this restaurant. There are some excellent parts of it and you can easily go to the restaurant two times in a row, but still get a completely different experience … Continue reading

Ken’s Ramen – Providence, RI

Ken’s Ramen – Providence, RI

I was introduced to ramen noodles fairly late in life as far as I’m concerned. Nonetheless, I’ve been making up for it by trying different restaurants offering this hearty Japanese soup. There has been a ramen-boom in RI and Massachusetts relatively recently and new restaurants are popping up more than ever. I’m not sure why … Continue reading

G Pub – Providence, RI

G Pub – Providence, RI

While looking for somewhere new to meet up with a couple of friends for dinner, my wife found G Pub and suggested we try it. The four of us met at the restaurant, eager to try something new in Providence. We had a great time hanging out, but the atmosphere and food at G Pub … Continue reading
