Bywater Restaurant Review – Warren, RI

Bywater Restaurant Review – Warren, RI

Date nights are precious and tend to become more infrequent the older people get, which coincides with taking on more responsibilities. As a result, it’s especially important to make those times count whether it’s a date night or just some free time out with friends. That’s why it hurts so much when that time is … Continue reading

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

KNEAD Doughnuts Review – Providence, RI

KNEAD Doughnuts Review – Providence, RI

It seems like Rhode Island is finally catching up to the doughnut craze that hit New York about 8 years before. It may have taken a while, but the doughnut renaissance of Rhode Island is finally here with the opening of a handful of gourmet doughnut shops in and around Providence. One of those bakeries … Continue reading

Table Restaurant Review – Barrington, RI

Table Restaurant Review – Barrington, RI

We stumbled upon Table while looking for somewhere new to eat just east of Providence, RI. A quick internet search brought up a small restaurant called, “Table.” It seemed like a nice place with relatively easy access right off of route 114. Like many small restaurants, the hours can be a little wonky, so call … 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. Prior to becoming Camelia of Istanbul, the restaurant was owned by a Lebanese family that called it “La Camelia Restaurant.” With the changing of hands to … Continue reading

Enoteca Umberto – Providence, RI

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

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

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

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
