I'm traveling to Providence (from LA) for a conference the first week of August and looking for some good food while there. I will be traveling with other co-workers, though I'm the foodie in the group and not adverse to eating alone if the cuisine is can't miss. I'm interested in the local "you must try this" places and "you can't get this anywhere else" dishes.
Love good martinis and wine bars.
Open to all styles of cookery, though I hear there is some great Italian to be had in Federal Hill. Also a great fan of seafood, but anything interesting will do.
Suggestions for evening activities would be appreciated too.
I will be staying downtown and limited to walking and/or public transit.
