My husband and I are taking out our best friend on Sunday to pay him back for helping us out in so many ways in the last two years. We are fairly new to the area and he will be visiting us from CT. We have been to Chinese Laundry, Capital Grille and Hemenways and enjoyed them.
We have checked out Broadway Bistro's website and have also been advised by some local friends to go there or Julians. However, we are looking for somewhere that has an elegant atmosphere and feels like a "gift" and celebratory ocassion.
The menu at Corpaccios looks pretty amazing and what we are looking for.
Any suggestions would be helpful as we plan on spending some money and would hate to waste it on a meal that was disappointing.
Thank You so much for any suggestions.
Have a great day

Do you maybe mean Capriccio, on Pine St.?
Certainly it's at a very different price point than Broadway Bistro or Julian's, which are nice neighborhood places, not destinations. Capriccio is stuffy white-tablecloth Italian. It's far more likely to seem like a gift. I don't think the food is terribly inspired, and it's more of an expense-account place, but I don't think you'll be disappointed, either.
My recommendation is Chez Pascal. The food there just blows me away every time. It's a place where you can really feel how much love and thought has been put into the food. Another plus is that it's on Hope St (East Side) so you won't have to deal with difficulty finding parking.

Well it looks like Capriccio is the winner as Chez Paul is closed on Sundays. Sorry to cause a stir. Thanks so much for all the advice. I am so glad I will "not" be disappointed by Capriccio..it seems. ..As I siad, new to the area and now know that this is the place to come for advice on the dining scene in RI.
Have a great day and dinner everyone.
Welcome to the area and to this board. Providence has a vibrant and interesting dining scene, both "fine" and otherwise. Read the archives, ask questions, and go out and try stuff. There's a lot more here than Hemenway's, Capital Grille and Capriccio (and Chinese Laundry closed a while ago.)
