I'm looking for some suggestions for a moms' weekend (well, okay a day and a half) in Providence. We'll be driving down from Boston Saturday and need a quick lunch before some sight-seeing (also open to suggestions on sights to see). We're checking in to the Hotel Providence downtown for one night, and would love to keep everything close by although we will have a car. After some searching, I was thinking dinner at Gracie's- opinions? Any opinions on Aspire, in our hotel, as far as Sunday brunch the next morning? We're all adventurous eaters, love seafood, and would like to keep entrees below $30 for dinner and below $15-ish for lunch and brunch. Since we live near Boston, we have access to Chinatown, the North End, etc, and are especially interested in anything unique to Providence or that might be convenient to a museum and still chow-worthy.
Thanks & I promise to report back-
