Suprising my wife in a few weeks with a Waterfire trip. Coming from Long Island via Orient Pt./New London ferry. Staying at the Courtyard. Arriving Friday, June 20th about 8pm. Suggestions welcome for a casual dinner and some walking around for that night. Maybe Federal Hill? Not sure of how late this area stays open for food. Saturday night is the B-day dinner and Waterfire. Booked a 9:10pm gondola ride. Here is where help is needed. After scouring some posts and knowing my wife's likes and dislikes I've put these on the list. ( P.S., I'm not wearing a jacket or tie and she is not wearing a dress)..... Cafe Nuovo, Bacaro, Siena, Pane e Vino, Gracies and Three Rivers. Keep in mind the 9:10pm gondola ride and I think we have to be there at least 15 min. earlier. I know these places are in different areas and its hard to tell by map how far away from Citizens Plaza we will be with some of these choices. Cafe Nuovo was my original choice for food and view but I don't know how fancy it is. Then I thought Bacaro with its Venice concept would fit in well with our gondola ride. ( We are obsessed with Venice). Federal Hill looked tasty. Tough call for one special dinner. Open to more suggestions. Keep in mind our time constraints. Also, while I'm here annoying you how about a place to grab a beer that says I went to a cool bar/pub while in Providence. Looking foward to the trip. Thanks.
