RI female owned restaurants

My fiancee is on the board of RINOW, a group devoted to womens progressive rights. They are looking for restaurants owned by females to hold special events and gatherings. Thanks in advance!

      went to Blaze for birthday dinner last night and was one of the best since living in RI. Mussels were fantastic, Voo-doo Shrimp and Portabella steak were winners. will go back soon to try more, Staff was very professional. It was a wonderful evening and we eat out often. Although meat was on the menu, I appreciate excellent non meat choices in a warm environment. We can't wait to go back. The dessert I got to go did not make it to the car.

        Bruna's Table in Westerly.

        Prime Time Cafe is actually over the bridge in Pawcatuck, CT.

                Blaze on Hope Street (Prov) is owned by a female couple, as is the Liberty Diner on Elmwood Ave (Prov).

          CAV in Providence is, I believe, owned by a woman. the Village Restaurant (African) in Pawtucket is owned by a woman. Of course, Al Forno is owned by a husband and wife team.

                Athena's, a new diner/cafe in Cranston, is I believe owned by a woman.

                I was there for breakfast this week and it was quite good.

                  Prime Time Cafe and Mermaid Cafe, both in Westerly, are female-owned.

                    I believe Rue de l'espoir is female owned, as is Gracie's. And Chez Pascal and Persimmon are owned by husband and wife teams.
