I will be in Providence with my wife and child for 36 hours. I am a professional chef with a background in fine dining--but I am really a beer drinking kitchen monkey at heart. I want to know what you would be willing to get up off of your couch, with a screaming hangover, in the snow, to go eat. I have quit jobs because I am tired of serving beautiful people-- do not send me trendy, so-so (i.e., polenta fries), culinarily arrogant suggestions please (and no 'we had a great tortilla soup when we went 3 years ago...'). From what I have read, it sounds as though one foray to cranston might be justified--and the crazy farm place that serves 2000 might be worth a WTF moment.
But here it is: when you are blue, and famished, and you don't care how hard it is to get--what MUST you have to eat in that area?
I thank you for being unreconstructed gluttons and sharing.
