Dining Review: Tavolo in Smithfield, Rhode Island

The entry wall

Last week we stopped in at Tavolo Wine Bar & Tuscan Grill in Smithfield, RI. We were armed with a groupon, hungry and thirsty, and completely unaware of what to expect. Surprise can be good and bad. Let’s see which way this one went.

The restaurant is in a rather interesting spot with multiple buildings

Dining Review – Chardonnay’s in Seekonk, MA

chard 5

We were looking for a restaurant somewhere between Providence, RI and New Bedford, MA recently to meet family. After a brief internet search it appeared that Chardonnay’s would be a good choice, at least based on the online reviews we read. The menu looked pretty amazing, and the wine list was also impressive. They have

A Great Jazz Weekend in Old Lyme, CT

Bill Charlap Trio

We were looking for something to do that was 1: new for us, 2: lots of fun and 3: relaxing at the same time. That’s not a very easy list of things to satisfy at the same time. It would also help if it was not too far from home and didn’t cost an arm

Dining Review: Bravo Brasserie in Providence, RI

bravo 5

Bravo sees us come through their doors fairly regularly. A large part of that is due to the restaurant being directly across the street from the Trinity Repertory Company’s theater, where we are season subscribers. It’s sort of a tradition that we get to Providence a bit early and stop in at Bravo for a

Dining Review – Aquitaine in Dedham, MA

acquitane 1

As you probably guessed from the name, Aquitaine is a French bistro, located in the Legacy Place shopping center off of Route 1A in Dedham, MA. We tend to like French bistros, and are happy to report that this is no exception. When you walk in a large bar extends on the left toward the

Dining Review – Gracie’s in Providence, RI

gracies 8

We have enjoyed going to Gracie’s periodically for many years. It has always delivered a quality dining experience, with excellent food and a good ambiance. They also allow you to bring your own wine, albeit with a $25 corkage fee. We had a couple of nice French reds in our wine bag this past weekend

Dining Review: Jamestown FiSH in Jamestown, RI

IMG_1916

Two years is about how long Cheri and I have talked about going to Jamestown FiSH to see what the fuss is about. We’ve had bites of chef Matthew MacCartney’s food at various wine events, seen the restaurant’s name in various places, and certainly noticed the consecutive Food & Wine “People’s Best New Chef” New

Dining Review: Bouchard in Newport RI

bouchard0717132LR

If you look at any dining guide for Newport, RI, you are always going to see one restaurant near the top. That restaurant is Bouchard, on Lower Thames Street. This stalwart of French cuisine is generally crowded, requires reservations, and gets lots of 5 star ratings. We were recently out with friends during Newport Restaurant

Dining Review of Rosalina in Providence, RI

Rosalina 4

We’re in Providence semi-regularly, and find our way to Trinity Rep for a play six times a year. There are a lot of restaurants to choose from in the city, and that’s a good thing. There’s actually quite a few a stone’s throw from the Trinity Repertory Theater as well, so choices do abound. One

Visit to Revival Brewery and Brutopia Brew Pub

UPDATE – JULY 2016

Since the positive review was published below we went back to Brutopia for lunch in June, 2016. This experience could not have been worse. There were not many people there, but the kitchen, for some reason, was horribly backed up. We had a drink at the bar and a couple of
