Everyman Bistro (Providence) - Closed for good
Another sad sign of the times - The Everyman Bistro on Valley St in Providence has closed it's doors for good. It opened in July, 2008.
I went there a number of times in the past two years, and the it was always hit-or-miss with food and service. They did a great bleu-cheese-stuffed hamburger, and great clamcakes, but they were very pricey for the portions they served. Service was either over-the-top, or non-existant. (Reviews on other sites suggest the same). I know other people who went there and loved it.
I think they went through an identity problem as well, in the past year - were they a bistro (as they started out)? a cafe (as they called themselves at lunch time)? a bar? They tried to be everything to 'everyman', but didn't seem to quite catch on. Still, it's sad to see another restaurant shutter after they took a gamble in a struggling economy (which only grew worse).
