Rec's for Waterfire restaurant
Hello, My wife and a few friends will be staying Providence in September for a Waterfire night. We were wondering where we should eat. We are staying at the Renaissance. We would prefer walking distance to the hotel and Waterfire. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Actually, the Chow Fun Food Group recently closed Citron and replaced it with Luxe Burger Bar. As far as downtown Providence, I would recommend New Rivers and Gracie's. Gracie's is a bit pricey, but really worth it. New Rivers is closer to the river, but neither are right on it. You might want to check on reservations. I know it's nearly impossible to get reservations for any of the restaurants on a WaterFire night.
Local121 and Bacaro are also quite enjoyable and downtown. I would check out their menus and see if any sound appealing to you. Most of the nicer restaurants in Providence have vegetarian options.
One last mention would be Cafe Nuovo. We haven't had a chance to go yet, but I've heard rave reviews of the place and it is right over the river.
