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

Fiesta Mexican Restaurant – Somerset, MA

Fiesta Mexican Restaurant – Somerset, MA

The struggle to find great food in the Somerset-Swansea, Massachusetts area continued to plague my wife and I. In a “throw-your-hands-up-in-defeat-moment,” we decided to try Fiesta Mexican Restaurant due to the good reviews it received. Our contentment at finding such a solid restaurant after so long was a nice surprise. It wasn’t that Fiesta was … 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

Kitchen Bar – Providence, RI

Kitchen Bar – Providence, RI

I visited Kitchen Bar during one of those moments where I felt like I wanted to try something new instead of eating at the same old restaurants in Providence (no matter how good they may be). I still wanted a filling meal that wasn’t going to leave me in a food coma, but that also … Continue reading

Blount Clam Shack – Warren, RI

Blount Clam Shack – Warren, RI

The summer is prime time for fresh seafood in New England and there are a lot of restaurants purporting to provide it. Part of the fun each summer is finding new seafood places to try from the classy restaurant to the clam shack. After a little research, I discovered such a clam shack right on the … Continue reading

James’ Breakfast and More – Wrentham, MA

James’ Breakfast and More – Wrentham, MA

I would never have thought to go to James’ on my own. That’s probably because I don’t really know my way around the Wentham/Norwood/Walpole area. Luckily, my friend Joe who lives nearby, suggested that we grab breakfast there to catch up. Not only did I enjoy hanging out with my friend, but I also found a … Continue reading

Chomp Kitchen and Drinks – Warren, RI

Chomp Kitchen and Drinks – Warren, RI

Chomp is truly a hidden gem nestled on the edge of Warren, RI. I only noticed it while driving by one day because the restaurant seemed to pop up out of nowhere like an oasis. It’s a little out of place in a woodsy neighborhood, but does not seem to be lacking in a strong … Continue reading

Mirasol’s Cafe – Dartmouth, MA

Mirasol’s Cafe – Dartmouth, MA

  Mirasol’s Cafe 439 State Road Dartmouth, MA 02747 (508) 996-2323 Service and Atmosphere Like many diamonds in the rough, Mirasol’s is part of a tiny strip mall. The parking lot for Mirasol’s get’s quite busy around lunch time and people often wait with their engines running to pounce on an open parking spot. The … Continue reading

North Restaurant – Providence, RI

North Restaurant – Providence, RI

During a “Guys’ Night,” a few of my friends and I went to North in Providence, RI. It is a relatively “young” restaurant having been established in late 2012 in place of the now closed, “Ama’s,” but has quickly made a name for itself. My friends and I had never been there before and were … Continue reading

Cibo Matto Caffe – Mansfield, MA

Cibo Matto Caffe – Mansfield, MA

Cibo Matto is an Italian restaurant just off of 495 in Massachusetts. Even though it’s a little off the beaten path in terms of location (i.e. it’s not in a big city), it’s easy to get to and worth the trip. At his suggestion, I met my producer friend, Joe, at the restaurant just to catch … Continue reading

Birch – Providence, RI

Birch – Providence, RI

Birch opened up in June 2013 and I finally had a chance to visit the restaurant when I went there to eat with friends. When I entered the restaurant, I wasn’t ready for how small it is. It basically only seats 16-18 people around a U-shaped bar. Nonetheless, this tiny restaurant, run by chef-owners Benjamin … Continue reading

Oga’s Japanese Cuisine – Natick, MA

Oga’s Japanese Cuisine – Natick, MA

I’d heard about Oga’s from a few food bloggers who had nothing, but good things to say about the restaurant. One blogger I read likened Oga’s to a more affordable, but same quality as some of the best sushi places in Boston like Oishii (see my review here). With rave reviews like that, I knew … Continue reading

Farmstead – Providence, RI

Farmstead – Providence, RI

I’ve known about Farmstead for a long time, but for some reason every plan I made to go there somehow derailed and I kept postponing the trip. After finally having a meal at Farmstead, I can see the error in my procrastinating ways. Farmstead is known for its commitment to sustainability, local food sourcing, and … Continue reading
