Providence Area Miscellaneous...

A couple of things I've noticed while driving around that I was wondering if folks could comment upon:

- It looks like New Haven Apizza in North Providence closed? The day I stopped by the doors were locked and it looked like interior renovation work was ongoing and the phone just rings... When did this happen? I was a fan...

- Also, is Jac's Wraps across from the Modern Diner closed? I know they opened recently near RI Hospital and WI Hospital, but did they close their original location?

- In the old Ronzio Pizza slot off East Ave in the "Garden Grille" plaza there it looks like there is a vegan bakery/cafe called "Wildflour" on the way.

- I had some pizza from Providence Pizza Company on Weybossett across from Classical High School (they've been there since about March) and found it to be more NY Style than many of the other places around, which was a nice change. I needed to/was able to fold the slice over to consume. Still could be a bit more flavorful, but that was a nice change from the usual around here...

Any other changes anyone has noticed?

  1. New Haven has been closed for a few months. It was a regular in our pizza rotation, but one day the phone just kept ringing and ringing.

    1. Jac's did close the original location. I didn't realize they had opened a second. Wildflour is a vegan and gluten free bakery from the owners of garden grille.
