Best Restaurant by URI

Going to the Boston Pops and want a nice place to eat beforehand. If its BYOB even better. Preferably closer and nicer than Spain or Crazy burger. I've heard the restaurant in the Holiday Inn is good, and I guess I could go to Shogun. I know nothing west of rt 1 by 138 and nothing in kingston.

      Also, Celestial Cafe has in the past been very good, Have not been in a while. It is the best choice closest to URI, within 2 miles. Located on route 2 (South County trail in Exeter) about 1.5 miles north of 138. In fact my wife and I had dinner there before the Pops concert at URI about 4 years ago:;
