Providence on Sunday night?
In a couple of months we will be in a hotel near the airport in Providence on a Sunday evening. I'd love to visit Al Forno or Chez Pascal, but they're both closed on Sunday. Is there a good, but not hugely pricey place not to be missed that's open Sunday evenings? We don't mind a taxi ride into town.
A few good things to check out on Sunday:
I don't know if they still do it, but Local121 was doing a fixed price "50 mile meal" of local food:)
(here's what we had when I went - excuse the bad picture: http://stephaniedoes.com/2007/50-mile-meal/
Another great option is CAV's bistro dinner which is such a good value for $16.95!
CAV is a beautiful restaurant...
It would be a pricey taxi ride, as PVD airport is 2 towns away from Providence (located in Warwick), close to 10 miles from the airport to downtown Providence. If you don't mind (I think it's about $30-35 for the taxi ride), Siena on Atwells Ave serves dinner on Sunday. http://www.sienaprovidence.com/
Gracie's also serves on Sunday: http://www.graciesprov.com/
Price range for both would be pasta in the high teens I'd say, to a high of over $30/entree for things like a veal chop.
A bit lower price point is Parkside, also open on Sundays:
In Cranston, a bit closer, Caffe Itri and L'osteria are supposed to be very good (they're on my list to try but I haven't gotten there yet.
Here is a link to the menu at L'osteria: http://www.projo.com/food/menus/losteria/pages/1_gif.htm
The only link I could find for Caffe Itri (www.caffeitri.com) doesn't seem to work....I hope that doesn't mean they've closed?
