Non-steakhouse Bachelor Party Dinner - Providence

Frobisher Sep 13, 2012 08:58 AM

Thoughts, ideas, suggestions? Most of the places I regularly go for a nice meal (Chez Pascal, New Rivers etc.) don't really fit the bill for a bachelor party.

Steakhouses have been nixed by the groom based on price point. So what does that leave us. I was thinking maybe Baccaro? Anyone tried the American? Providence Oyster Bar?

    The American is great, decent prices, but you may want to check out a menu online if that's an issue. Same with Bacarro, prices are comparable with steak houses I think. The American is in a fantastic space, very man friendly I think, with great drinks, good beers and an eclectic men that will have something for everyone--from steak to seafood to salads. I'm partial to their chicken pot pie, sounds retro, but it's so good.

      i thought the american was completely underwhelming. really REALLY unattentive service, comedic lack of knowledge of their own menu, and the chicken pot pie i had was 95% pie, 5% chicken.

      how about los andes? food is fantastic, portions are large, and the menu is heavy on grilled meats and seafood. they can certainly accommodate large parties as well.

        That's on the agenda for after dinner.

          Bacaro would be a good choice. Nick's on Broadway also, unless you have a huge group.
