24 Hours in Providence - What to do??

Hi, my New England Chowhound friends - we will be spending 24 hours in Providence next month on our way to Boston. That means one dinner, breakfast, and lunch - in that order. We will be staying at the Westin. In reading the boards, it appears I should go to La Laiterie at Farmstead Cheese, Mill's Tavern, and Nicks. And, I know my husband would probably love a good Italian dinner - I mean Italian like Tortellini Bolognese. We will probably be in Newport during lunchtime. Help me weed thru my options and send me in the right direction. Thanks, all, in advance.
PS: I was planning a visit to the Johnson & Wales Culinary Museum...worth the trip?
the JWU museum is totally worth the trip... really awesome collection of stuff you wont see anywhere else - including an original worcester diner! check it out!
I was a *bit* confused by your post... Is lunch going to be in Newport or Providence?
I second Nick's for breakfast in Providence. Check the hours of everything. For example, I don't think La Laiterie is open for lunch...
For an Italian dinner in Providence, there are lots of options, but I love Siena on Federal Hill.
All the rec's sound good--I would follow dinner with a Waterfire stroll--not to be missed if it's a Waterfire night. Make it Chowish by discusing what you've eaten that day as you enjoy the evening!
