I am looking for a restaurant in Providence for two families to celebrate college graduation. There are eight people, four of whom will not eat shellfish or meat/poultry. Al Forno had been suggested, but it is booked and frankly it is panned on this board.
Our own family our going to Ten Prime the night before which I know my two boys and husband really love . I have been to Broadway Bistro and Nicks on Broadway and loved them both but would like to step it up in terms of atmosphere etc as it is a celebratory dinner. La Laiterie is great, but too casual and I found Waterplace just so so. There seems to be a lot of love on Chowhound for Gracies and New Rivers- just not sure how they will jive with the dietery requirements. Italian may be a good choice... We are staying at the Hilton but have a car. I have never eaten on Attwells and it may be nice to walk somewhere. Any recs/ help are most appreciated. hope I am not too late in the game. Many thanks.
