Late night near the Providence Biltmore?

I'm going to be staying at the Biltmore in Providence tomorrow night, and I'm trying to find an interesting place to eat that's in walking distance of my hotel and Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel. I like unusual and creative places, and have come up with places like Red Fez by reading previous posts, but I'm not really sure about the geography of it all. Also, it'll have to be a place that's open late, since dinner will probably have to wait until 10 or 11. Any natives have suggestions that'll let me eat well without getting into my car?

Best Italian Sandwiches in Brooklyn?

The cold subs at Catene are certainly as good any I've had, but I go for those incredible calamari subs. The calamari itself has that perfect snap to it, and their sauce has some real spice to it. Plus its huge and reheats well enough that you could live off of it for a whole weekend.

Store bought noodles [moved from Home Cooking board]

I'm wondering if anyone knows of any good brands of ramen noodles which can be bought at stores? I'm not talking about the instant soup, but just the actual noodles. I'd prefer something I could get at my local supermarket, but brands which I could find at the local chinese grocery would work as well (I know ramen are japanese noodles, but there isn't a japanese grocery around here).

Flan around poughkeepsie

oh, I realize that there are lots of places that'd serve it, its just a question of who makes it well. I've found that a lot of places which are otherwise good (like la cabanita, whose tortas are fantastic), make a pretty mediocre flan.

Flan around poughkeepsie

Its recently come to my attention that my girlfriend has never had flan, and I feel the need to rectify the situation. When I stop to think of it, however, I can't think of where good flan is to be found in he general poughkeepsie area. I'm sure Santa Fe up in Tivoli must have it, but I was wondering if anyone could give me other recommendations?

budget dinner in philly

the concert's at the electric factory, so we'd want to be eating somewhere near there if possible, though its not crucial.

budget dinner in philly

my girlfriend and I are heading to a concert in philly, and I'm looking for suggestions for a pre-show meal. we're only looking to spend around $50 total for the meal, but I'm sure a great meal can be had for that. We're both pretty adventurous eaters, so unusual is better, but anyplace that puts out a good, affordable meal will do.
