Fellow Singapore chowhounder Fourseason and myself had been having annual chowmeets all over the world for almost a decade. Last year we had a great 'Michelin Star Run' in New York, where we ate at Jean George, The Modern, Casa Mono...etc
This summer, due to various reasons, we might be having our annual chowmeet in Providence/!! We both love seafood, fine dining and what ever taste great....!.
After some searching on this board, 'Gracie's' and ' La Laiterie' seems like a couple of interesting places for a nice gathering and some fine food. Are they too fancy for lunch? Since information was dated around 2011-2012, I am hoping for an updated confirmation of current form and food quality.
In addition to the aforementioned two, any other great, relatively new comers worthy of recommendation? Establishment with seafood as their forte would be a plus.
BTW, great chow is our first and major criteria. If establishments are less refined in ambiance, decor and service, its fine with us. Afterall, our culinary ventures had taken us to hole-in-the-wall places in Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore...etc.
Thank you all in advance!!
