Cape Verdean in RI

I know there are several Cape Verdean restaurants in Pawtucket and I would imagine perhaps Providence and E. Providence as well. I just don't know the area* or the food well enough to know which places are a good choice for a newbie. I've never had Cape Verdean food, but the things I've read sound appealing and I would love to explore it. Any recs on restaurants would be greatly appreciated. I'm not concerned with hipness or decor, just deliciousness, though friendly service is always a great plus. Thanks!

*I live in CT but I love RI and I'm working on moving there, so I visit often.

  1. Great question! I'm not aware of any in Providence proper... Does anyone else know differently?

    I'd love to have such a place in the metro...

    PS: When you do move to RI, check out the hugely comprehensive, 45 page "Moving to Providence" forum on Urbanplanet:

    1. Waterbury CT has a Cape Verdean Social Club so that area might be worth further exploration.

        Pay special attention for anything posted by "Louis". When it comes to Portuguese, Cape Verdean or just about anything in the the South Coast/R.I. area he is the walking, talking lexicon.
