Seafood dinner in Providence
My husband and I will be staying in Providence for 1 night in June. We'd love to get some authentic Rhode island seafood. Any suggestions? Alternatively, if you think there is a "must eat" in town let us know -- we are open to suggestions (and love all types of food).
We'll be staying at the Hotel Providence; any good restaurants close to our hotel would be a bonus.
Thanks so much!
I hear the hotel is beautiful, but the restaurant attached to it, L'epicureo, I can't reccomend. Given the location I would strongly reccomend Gracie's which is in walking distance on Washington St. In addition to local seafood, they serve mostly all local and sustainable products, impeccably prepared. For a local favorite for seafood I love Providence Oyster Bar on Atwells ave. That is the Federall Hill neighborhood which is fun to stroll before or after dinner, however the restaurant is not Italian but lots of great local seafood. Have fun and come back often!
For upscale, Hemenway's or the Oyster House, but for fried seafood, try Horton's in East Providence...
