High-end places in Providence?
I live between Worcester and Providence. I've got an anniversary coming up, and am looking for a really high-end restaurant to take SWMBO to. When we were in boston we'd do places like Ajourd'hui and No 9 Park.
I'm pretty confident no comparable restaurant exists in Worcester.
What about Providence? I'm not looking for "nice night out", I'm looking for "totally insanely fancy" kind of place. Any suggestions?
newports just a little further and has a couple of high end places that might fit the bill.castle hill,clark cook house,spiced pear are three that come up right away,im sure theres a few others that could be included in the list.
In addition to Gracie's and Chez pascal, consider New Rivers
Mill's Tavern and Baccaro are also quite good.
Consider heading west to Still River Cafe, in Ashford CT. Start early and do a wine tasting at Sharpe Hill first, make an afternoon of it. I haven't gotten to Still River yet, but Boston Mag named it the top foodie destination of New England. Btw Worcester & PVD is a big area, but I plugged Douglas in to Mapquest, and it's under an hour via Route 16 to 395 to 44 West.
There are, no doubt, fine places in Providence, but I want to second the recommendation of Still River Cafe. I've been there, and I don't know a better restaurant in New England. Boston included. I guess it's not "totally insanely fancy," though it's really nice, but it is "totally insanely good."
