I know Providence/Fall River etc. is home to a large Portuguese population, but are there any really exquisite restaurants serving that cuisine? I love Madeira for the theatric giant family experience of it. I like Estrela do Mar fine, Solmar has its moments, but is there something beyond bacalhau and pork and clams? I figured it was just that I didn't like the cuisine in general, but we went a few years ago to a restaurant in the west village of New York that blew us away. It was a little haute, but unbelievably delicious, fresh and varied. Is there anything that breaks the mold locally in Rhode Island?
Any tips? Thanks!
