In a few days, my friend and I will be spending our third mini-weekend in Providence (Friday afternoon through Saturday night). We really like the city and have had some great meals. Here's where we've dined:

Cook and Brown. Good -- though not amazing -- food, great service. Enjoyed our experience there -- but one of the best new restaurants of 2010?

Harry's Bar & Burger. Sat at the bar for lunch. Great beer selection. Loved the simple (almost) slider-only menu.

Al Forno. Though I live less than an hour away in Boston, I'd never been there. Food was enjoyable. Menu is very long. Would like to try it again, perhaps in the summer when we might sit outside.

Gracie's. Delicious, inventive food.

Julian's. For brunch. Good food. Fun, relaxed atomosphere. I was impressed by the attention to the plating of my order of three a la carte items.

Providence Oyster Bar. LIked this place as well.

We've had very good luck. So Providentialists -- where should we eat this weekend?
