DINING: Providence is a foodie destination with endless dining options!

 

Providence is home to the world-renowned Rhode Island School of Design. The school has it own museum, but don’t miss the many smaller galleries throughout town as well.

Federal Hill (“Little Italy”) offers a plethora of dining experiences. The main drag is Atwells Avenue, which is ideal for finding a great snack, a bracing espresso, or some freshly made pasta to take back home.

The Culinary Museum at Johnson & Wales University offers one of the finest collections of kitchenware, appliances, cookbooks, menus, historic showpieces, and diner artifacts in the world.

WaterFire’s one hundred sparkling bonfires, the fragrant scent of aromatic wood smoke, the flickering firelight on the arched bridges and the enchanting music from around the world engage all the senses and emotions of those who stroll the paths of Waterplace Park. (CHECK THEIR SCHEDULE)
