Looking for a good date place this Sunday

Hey all-

Looking for a good date place this Sunday. All my favorites are closed. Would have gone to, depending on mood and such: Chez Pascal, Gracies, la laiterie, Pot Au Fue or Red Fez, Cook and Brown is an option, but I was looking for something new. Quiet is better than loud. We will eat almost anything. Ethnic is an option but not the mess that Apsara is. Spicy is good and the more authentic the better. Dives are good if, the food is great and we can BYOB. The food at Red Strip is ok, but it is very loud. Driving is in the cards. Oh, and chains are out, and that includes, the John Elkenbery stuff and the like.

OK , Rhode Island... what have you got!

Red Fez
49 Peck St, Providence, RI 02903

Chez Pascal Restaurant

Apsara Restaurant

  1. If a drive is possible, what about Colonel Blackinton in Attleboro?

    More of a drive - one of my favorites - 85 Main in Putnam, CT. If you have the time, start out midafternoon and do a wine tasting at Sharpe Hill before backtracking to Putnam.

    1. .....and I know you said no Elkhay stuff, BUT ....but....Cafe Noir IMO is better than Red Stripe, both in food & atmosphere, so if you'd consider one, why not the other?

      L'osteria in Cranston is another thought..
