So, I'm heading to Providence from VA in mid-June with my husband- a birthday trip for him to eat, drink, and see some good music. I've enjoyed all the posts here. I wonder, is Empire still open? I have read so much great stuff on the chefs and Al Forno, but haven't seen the restaurant's name pop up in recent posts. Also, does anyone have any thoughts on Mediterraneo? We'd like some good Portuguese food when we're there. We're up for anything, from the "chi-chi" places to the dives, as long as the food is excellent. Pastiche, 3 Steeple, Oak, Rue l'Espoir are on our list of possibilities. Thanks for any info, suggestions, warnings!!
