Quick lunch in Providence near Amtrak?

LJW Jul 1, 2008 09:36 AM

I am being picked up at the train in Providence this week and would love to have a quick lunch in one of my favorite cities before heading out to the Cape. One thought was Geoff's on Benefit; any other suggestions?

    You could go to Waterplace restaurant and eat outdoors over looking Waterplace park.

      You may want to head straight over to Hemenway's. The lobster salad is delicious, as well as their lobster club sandwich (if they are repeating it this summer - they did it last summer and I went every Monday for it). Their lunch menu is very good - generous portions - and their prices are reasonable.

        I'd go to Waterplace, close by and a great outdoor patio. I had the carbonara style mac & cheese and it was great.

          While not my favorite (it's merely OK), Waterplace is close (virtually across the street), nice, and will certainly satisfy.
