Fellow foodies!
Just back from the first trip to Cattails in East Providence. Drop everything!! Go!! Do not hesititate!! Went there on a chance tonight because another place (LaCamilia) was either closed or out of business. What a happy chance happening. Had the BEST meal starting with the perfect martini. A perfect aruggala salad with grilled mushrooms and carmelized whole baby onions with a bit of thin provelone. Followed by an evening special of Grouper over a bed of risotto with Andoullie sausage and baby spinach. Perfect!! A beautiful Chocolate/Hazelnut cake with fresh rasberry sauce and whipped cream (fresh) with Limmoncello to cap it all off. Our server, Derek, was amazing. Attentive, friendly and professional. And, we agreed, more than usually attractive! The dining room is attractive and simple - sort of a Southwest flavor. If there is anything wrong it is the fact that the room is a bit noisy - Plaster walls, large windows, no drapes. But for the superb food, service and overall quality I can forgive that. Do NOT hesitate!! Get there and support this great new place. Probably not a problem as it was busy on a Thursday night, but a fine place like this needs full tables every night. They do not, I heard, take reservations for less than six, but if you have to wait there is a very nice bar. Get there!!
