Went for dinner on Thursday night. Had an amazing experience. The stuff was great and friendly. Was not rushed to make any decisions on apps or dinner. When we did decide it came out hot and tasted amazing. Go out and try a local gem!!

About the restaurant
Gracie’s is committed to providing an unforgettable dining experience. Great lengths are taken to ensure each dish highlights local seasonal ingredients. Our team works closely with local farmers, fishermen, brewers, winemakers, and distillers to bring you the freshest ingredients available. Gracie’s team is trained to accommodate food allergies and a wide range of dietary restrictions.

We are conveniently located in downtown Providence’s theater district (across from Trinity Rep and a short walk from PPAC). We are also close to the Dunkin Donuts Center, the RI Convention Center, Brown University, RISD, Johnson and Wales University, and Providence College.

We believe in full transparency; a 22% service fee (Teamshare) is added to each check to compensate our team of trained professionals with a consistent and reliable salary. Additional gratuity is optional and will be dispersed to the Hospitality Team.

Thank you for choosing Gracie’s and supporting our passion.

About the restaurant
Dine on a fusion of American and Italian cuisine at Fresco. Its relaxing atmosphere, as well as friendly service, allows for comfort while enjoying a good meal and conversing with friends or family. Chefs at Fresco creatively plate meals made to order and from fresh ingredients. Guests can choose from an array of flavorful appetizers, soups and salads before moving on to their main course. An entrée of roasted pork tenderloin topped with apple chutney or pan-seared chicken with red pepper mascarpone sauce will fulfill the appetite. Wood-grilled pizza, gluten-free and pasta dishes, as well as scrumptious desserts are on the menu. Fresco has a full bar and provides wine pairings with meals. It features daily specials, including prix fixe dinners on Monday. Reservations are also welcomed.

Great value on Mondays with their Monday night special dinner for 2 for $50. It includes 2 salads, 2 entrees, and a bottle of wine. I had the ceasar salad and salmon with jasmine rice and green beans. The food is always delicious, and the service is friendly and professional. I bring family and friends here quite often. There is free off-street parking.

About the restaurant
If you are looking for some of Providence's best Asian food around, look no further than Noodles 102. For 17 years, Noodles has been serving the East Side a variety of delicious noodle soups, dumplings, claypot rice, and stir fry noodles.

While we're best known for our Ramen, Pho, and Udon noodle soups, we are also highly-regarded for our Drunken Noodles, Pad Thai, and Green Curry Lemongrass Stir Fry. Before you dive in head first to your meal, don't forget to try our pork or vegetable dumplings, Nime Chow, and our scallion pancakes.

Noodles is also vegan and gluten-free friendly! All of our broths and sauces are already gluten free, and our broths can be made vegetarian based, so you'll never have to worry about not having enough options.

About the restaurant
THE CHASKA
EXPERIENCE
Food and drink are two of the most basic needs of human beings. However, as society evolved, food and drink became also a strong cultural aspect, being able to connect and celebrate differences.

CHASKA, a hindi term for obsession, is not just an eatery or a bar. It is an attempt to connect people with good taste for Indian food and drinks, presented with modern flair.

About the restaurant
Taverns have had a constant important presence in American life since the late 1600's. Many of them, which were attached to inns, were opened as resting places for travelers needing a place to stop, relax and fortify themselves. Of course the local residents frequented the taverns too, purchasing drinks and meals as well as participating in lively conversations. Taverns were the focal point for neighbors to come together, exchange news, talk of politics, and share in the general feeling of conviviality. Taverns were firmly established as gathering places for the light hearted socializing, serious talk, and of course, a
hearty meal accompanied by a tasty libation or two.
In this American tradition, we at Mill’s Tavern welcome you with genuine enthusiasm. Our staff is warm, friendly, caring, and knowledgeable. So please come, relax, visit with friends and family. You will leave refreshed and nourished, body and soul.

The service we had was outstanding. Waiter had the perfect balance of professionalism and humor. The dinning area was very classy and the spacing of the tables was more generous than many other restaurants in Prividence. Cocktails and food were both excellent with very healthy portions. One could make the argument that there are other restaurants in the area where you can get an equivalent meal for a little lower price, but the quality of service and environment easily justify a little higher price for a very nice dining experience.

First time here I met the owner “Rob” and his wife. Rob and the staff were outstanding. In total people must’ve had about 10 visits to our table. Talk about great service! The food was unbelievable, the best I’ve had anywhere. If you don’t go here now with everybody you know you’re missing out! Can’t wait to go back!
