I grew up in RI but haven't lived there in quite awhile and am not up on the restaurant scene.
To give you an idea of what we're thinking, we were planning to go to the Old Canteen but could only get an 8:30pm reservation and someone has decided that's too late. My mom has also suggested Andino's and Twin Oaks. I don't mind Twin Oaks -- it's an experience -- but kind of want to try something new. I've heard good things about Andino's but wondered what the Hounds thought and if anyone has any other suggestions.
We don't necessarily need to do Italian, but one in our party isn't a very adventurous eater and doesn't do too well with "exotic" foods. My father will probably be treating everyone, so I don't want to suggest anything too expensive. (I've never been to Gracie's and have heard great things, but it's unfortunately probably too avant garde and expensive for our group.)
Thanks in advance for any ideas!
