Flatbread co opened on Cushing st off Thayer a couple days ago.
Whilst driving to the newly renovated chilangos we noticed that Toro has opened in the old Blush spot on the hill.

Heard through the grapevine that a restaurant will be opening in the new G building downtown on Dorrance. Possibly called G Pub. Not sure the timeframe as the building is still under construction. May spell the end of the ailing Congress Tavern

Heard a rumor that flatbread company was opening off Thayer sometime soon....still renovating the building as of now

1 day in Oak Bluffs (Martha's Vineyard)

Ate at Red Cat last fall and it was amazing. Funky and relaxed with awesome food. We sat on the porch which is more like a 3 season extension of the main restaurant and had a great time. It reminded me of places we'd been to in New Orleans (Dante's Kitchen, Green Goddess)

Rhode Island Dining Scene: Be Cautious

Hope st pizza "dishwasher did not wash hands between loading soiled dishes and removing clean dishes". That happens in every restaurant hundreds of times a night. Sensational is right...Hopefully the non restaurant working public are aware that not every violation is life threatening shut down the kitchen type of situation.

PVD/RI * June '13 * Open/Closed/Coming Soon

Succotash in the old Jakes/ Apartment space had a soft opening last night. Owned by Coco Pazzo and English Cellar group. Southern brunch focused I believe

D'etente in edgartown for fancier new french
Red Cat in O.B. for funkier food more casual

where do PVD folks go for dinner on just an "average night out?"

Ebisu on Pontiac ave just over the PVD line

Attleboro MA recommendations

Wendell's is about 15 min away in norton. Awesome wings in a roadhouse cash only atmosphere. Also cheap sandwiches and soups. Last time I was in I ordered a blt...they ran out of tomato so they gave me extra bacon. Best solution ever. It's was 3.50$

Oyster Crawl in PVD

Just had fried oysters at north. So awesome and presentation separated it from most deep fried nuggets you see everywhere else. Lightly fried, wrapped in napa with apple, tofu and kimchi. Great crunch spicy briny goodness. Hemenways does 1/2 price raw bar Mondays that we hit up more for the crab legs than oysters but its adequate for what it is. PVD oyster bar has "appy hour" during the week w 1$ selections but will usually have a few off the menu choices if you chat them up ( a few sweetneck oysters from mv last time we were in) the 1$ oysters were from va

Where to watch the PATS this Sunday in/around FQ?

Boston natives in town Sunday-Friday are looking to watch football. Staying on royal st in FQ. Willing to travel (we land a couple hours before 6:30 kickoff) doesn't have to be in FQ . Just looking for decent bar food/tv viewing. All suggestions welcome

Eddy has opened on Eddy St. just off Westminster behind Modern Love. Owned by some Dorrance alums. Small menu, small space (about 40 including the bar) but already an industry hangout. Opened last Wednesday. Focusing on properly made cocktails at a reasonable price. 7$ sazerac people!!!

PVD/RI * November '12 * Open/Closed/Coming Soon

Andy Jr's Appetizers Plus opened quietly on the hill in October. Drove by last night. Space looks nice. Can't find much info on it. Anyone been?

PVD/RI * November '12 * Open/Closed/Coming Soon

Stopped in Monday afternoon ( opening day) and was impressed with the small but awesome array of kitchen stuff. New and vintage cookbooks, cookware, cast iron, aprons, serving pieces etc. definitely excited to see if demos are in the future. Currently seems to be strictly non food items...wonder if that will change?

PVD/RI * November '12 * Open/Closed/Coming Soon

Mile and a Quarter has opened according to a yelper. Can't find any website and just happened to see the review from a few days ago. Had driven by many times while they were renovating the old barnsider space the past few months. Signage mentioned it being a wine bar. Anyone been? Said review is a bit...umm...ambiguous...

PVD/RI * November '12 * Open/Closed/Coming Soon

Circe just opened in the old Downcity space. Monday was opening night. Pan-Mediterranean menu looks interesting. Open for lunch and dinner daily and brunch on the weekend.

Sorry meant to post this on the June thread!

PVD/RI * May '12 * Open/Closed/Coming Soon

Drove by The Custom House last night and the windows while still papered over have signs up that say 52 restaurant & lounge coming soon. One of the owners has a dj / nightlife promotion business...I have a feeling it will be a dinner til 10 then turn into a nightclub type of place. Not sure of the projected opening date

PVD/RI * May '12 * Open/Closed/Coming Soon

I would agree on the pricing. We shared the 18$ sausage pizza. I liked the crust but it needed some salt. On a side note the bartender was the former owner of Downcity. Is she involved in ownership?
