Providence - The Creative Capitol
As the capital of the Ocean State, it should be no surprise that Providence, RI restaurants are known for serving the freshest seafood. Hemenway’s Restaurant, a Rhode Island food scene icon, has been offering locals and visitors top-of-the-catch seafood for decades, as well as its scenic views of the Providence skyline. (Ask for their signature shellfish platter.) The views are pretty great at Mare Rooftop, too, where seafood entrees are inspired by a Mediterranean food culture and where you can enjoy a 360-degree view of the city inside heated igloos. At the Providence Oyster Bar on Federal Hill, delicious entrees include baked stuffed shrimp and linguine and clams, as well as hand-rolled sushi and raw-bar delicacies like oysters, littlenecks and cherrystones.
