Monday Night Dinner in Providence

While in town, we have time for one dinner in Providence. But it is on a Monday and all our top picks are closed. Based on what is open, I have narrowed our choices down to the following:

Waterman Grille
Local 121
Loie Fuller
New Rivers

Which one to pick? Am I forgetting a place? We are having lunch at Aspara, so I was going to avoid Asian if possible.

  1. I hear good things about New Rivers, but have never been there. I can highly recommend Gracies and Chez Pacqual, both outstanding restaurants.

      I looked into Gracie's and Chez Pascal, but both are closed on Mondays.

    2. Z Bar on Wickenden St. Great food, friendly service and a cozy, flower-filled, outdoor patio.

      1. New Rivers gets my vote for Monday dining. Be sure to order the nime chow at Apsara, it's the best I've had this side of the Dateline.

        1. Loie Fuller would be my pick. It's a beautiful and relaxed place in an off-the-beaten-track location, which I love (disclaimer: I live the 'hood). As an out-of-towner, it's most easily accessible if you have a car.

          1. I had dinner at Louie Fuller tonight (and it was solid), but it's tough to beat the stellar gnocchi and the (Monday night only) 1/2 price wine at Pane e Vino. The service is awesome and the bread pudding is killer, although my friends swear by the veal chop and the fish in "crazy water".
