Best Stuffies Between Barrington and Newport

The stuffies at Flo's in Portsmouth (I can't speak for their Middletown location since I've never been there) aren't too bad, and the view there is nice. In Warren, Blounts stuffiies are okay, as are the studies at Quito's which is in Bristol.

Fisherman's Market in New Bedford closing.

Bummer. I would often stop there on my way home from work.

It looks like Tallulah's Taqueria is opening where United BBQ used to be on Ives St., on the East Side. I drove by and noticed signs in the windows.

Also, a Mexican themed place has opened where Barstow was on Allens Ave.

Catered BBQ for grad party PVD RI

Becky's BBQ in Middletown. It's not bad considering where we are.

Venison in RI

I've been thinking that I'd like to try my hand at cooking venison, especially some tenderloin, but can't seem to find it in the area. Does anybody have any idea where I can get some? Rhode Island or SE Mass area.
Thanks

My wife and I had brunch there this morning. I thought it was pretty good. I had an omelet with smoked bluefish and other goodies topped with a creme fraiche and a side of Moroccan potatoes. My wife had poached eggs with Serrano ham on some type of bread and finished with a smoked maple hollandaise. Very good, freshly ground coffee. While were there we checked out their lunch and dinner menus. They offer a lot of interesting food with the local flavor thing going on. A little pricy but I'm cheap. $30 for brunch for 2. Was it worth it? For a once in a while thing, yeah, it was worth it. We'll return for at least a lunch and a dinner.

I don't see the neighborhood supporting them that much with it being a largely Portuguese blue collar area. I can't see it being their type of thing but who knows. I think they're going to have to draw in customers from other areas. I hope they make it. It will be a nice addition to the local food scene.

My sister is visiting from CA - Need to find her some Foie!

We just got back from Cocotte. My daughter had foie gras which she seemed to enjoy. The food and service were both very good. It's a little pricy there though.

Rhode Island clamming question?

You can cook tainted shellfish to a "safe" condition?

Rhode Island Dining Scene: Be Cautious

Yeah a lot of these are things that happen everywhere everyday, but I was a little concerned about a place that I "used" to eat at, Andreas. That thing about the gnawing, bugs and rodent urine was, disturbing.

Fish Markets in New Bedford

One other point about New Bedford Fisherman's Market. Check their hours before you go.

Fish Markets in New Bedford

New Bedford Fisherman's Market is the place I go to for my seafood. Apparently they have their own day boat fleet as a source of their seafood. Great prices and I have always been satisfied with what I got there. I work with several people that also use Kyler's. I've tried them a couple of times for steamers and have been disappointed both times unfortunately.

Where to eat driving from TF Green to Milford, MA (but not Providence)?

Atwells Ave is usually insane on a Friday night, and your best bet to get into a decent restaurant there is with reservations. I would avoid that place on a Friday nite like the plague! A week night, sure, but otherwise I'll pass.

Knife Sharpening on Cape or S.E. Mass.?

I'd be real careful about using a machine to sharpen knives. The heat generated by speed of the grinding stones will adversely affect the temper of the blade.

Breakfast place from south western MA/CT border to Bennington, VT area

I'll second Blue Benn. My daughter went to school in Bennington. I've had several breakfasts and a few lunches there and haven't been disappointed.

Weekend away -- Providence, RI for "Halloween"

I would dismiss the Liberty Elm. I've been there and the service was nonexistent.

What's the best place for breakfast around Warwick RI

Spoonem's isn't bad, although I've only been there once. I like the Sunrise Cafe on West Shore Rd. they have a large assortment of omlets to choose from. They also have a few different versions of hash that they make, and, they home fries aren't previously frozen.

Nordic Lodge

It's still there, however, this price has changed. I went there a couple of years ago so that I could say I tried it and the price was $75 per person. I wasn't aware of any time restrictions while I was there.

Milkshakes - Rhode Island, Southeastern MA

There are frappes AND awful awful's at the creamery. Two different things. Frappes are made with syrup and ice cream, Awful Awful's are made with syrup and ice milk.

Rhode Island - Providence & Newport

A couple of other food trucks are, Poco Loco which is a taco/burrito truck. Good, fresh tasting food there. There is also a Korean BBQ truck that I haven't tried yet but, gets pretty good reviews.

Meat Markets in Providence

There's a pretty good one on Gano Street, but the name escapes me at the moment

Good Southern Cuisine / BBQ in Providence/Patwucket, RI

LJ's BBQ on East Ave in Pawtucket (just over the line from the east side of Providence) is your best bet for now.

United BBQ in Providence

Anybody know if there's anything in the works for United BBQ? I was really disappointed when they closed. I thought they were one of the best options in the area for barbecue.
