Hi everyone...I am looking for a Providence restaurant recommendation.
I've heard certain restaurants described as "neighborhood restaurants". I believe that this means that they are not special destination restaurants (such as Gracie's, Capriccio, etc.) and are slightly less expensive with more of a local and casual crowd.
I've heard Red Stripe described this way and my fiancee and I have been there once but had just an average experience. We loved the ambiance and energy of the place and the drinks, but the food was just so-so and the service not so great. We had a very similar experience at Citron.
That being said, does anyone have recommendations for another neighborhood restaurant with good food and fun drinks? I'd like to go somewhere with an upbeat (not too stuffy or dressy) atmosphere and some quality eats. Also, am I missing somewhere on Federal Hill that fits these qualifications?
