Foodie guide to Providence, RI?

lobsterkiller | Jan 8, 201411:51 AM     4

I am not seeing a whole lot of info for Providence (and surrounding area) on this site and would love some help. Any recommendations for restaurants, gourmet stores, kitchen stores, or any other unique foodie destinations in the area would be appreciated. I'm not worried about budget or location...just want to find EXCELLENT food. More importantly, I have been having a hard time finding a spot for a weekday business lunch. I am trying to find a nice place or just somewhere with truly fantastic food.

This is what I've found online, so far:

Restaurants: Flan y Ajo, Birch, Local 121, Gracie's, Chez Pascal, Tallulah in Newport
Brunch: Cook & Brown, Nick's on Broadway
Bakery: Seven Stars
Gourmet shop: The Farmstead
Local coffee roaster: Dave's
Italian Market: Venda Ravioli
Wine Shop: ENO
Cocktails: The Eddy
Lobster Roll & Oysters: Matunuck in South Kingstown

Please add to the list or agree/disagree with what I've found. I mainly went off of Google and Yelp. As for gourmet shops, I found a place called The Farmstead but it looks like it could just be a cheese and charcuterie shop. Are there any other gourmet shops in the area? Or other local food artisans (coffee roaster, chocolate maker, brewery, etc.)?

Gracie's
Chez Pascal & The Wurst Kitchen
Tallulah's Taqueria
nicks on broadway
Venda Ravioli
Eno Fine Wines
The Eddy
Seven Stars Bakery
