DINNER MEETING IN PROVIDENCE - HELP WITH LOCATION

s

I'm meeting a colleague in Providence this week for a dinner meeting. I'm driving from Boston; he's driving from CT. I'm looking for a place that : 1. We can both find easily from the highway, and that won't involve either of us wandering around lost, 2. That has interesting or good food - no Applebee-type places, please, 3. Where we can spread out a little bit and not be rushed or glared at, 4. That won't require reservations or a long wait for a table. 5. That will have parking.

I know it's a tall order, but I'm hoping to not have to resort to a Starbucks. Does such a place exist??Thanks in advance!

      If you dont mind a small 5 minute ride outside Providence...
      Brewed Awakenings in Johnston is great for a Coffee Shop place
      if not there, try Union Station (mid week, it wont be busy, and the food is very good)
