New to Providence

mvi | Dec 8, 2007 05:13 PM

I have just moved to Providence (Wayland Square) and would love some ideas of where to go.
I've wandered over to Red Stripe a couple of times because it's only two minutes away, and I have also been to the Garden Grille with some friends. Red Stripe has treated me well, in general. I can have decent wine by the glass and I like their small plates. Their house cured smoked salmon is really a treat. My only complaint was the amount of smoke (and fishy smells) wafting out from the open kitchen on one of the nights I was there. None the less, it is a convenient neighborhood spot and I have really enjoyed having it close by during this hectic time when I am unpacking boxes and dealing with the details of my move. It seems I am there early enough to avoid the noise which I have read about.

I am a single woman and enjoy eating alone but the environment needs to be comfortable enough that I do not feel like the object of too much curiousity. I don't mind sitting at the bar but like sitting at a table if the bar is too crazy. I'll eat anything as long as I can stay away from lima beans. Good wine by the glass is a plus, too.

Thanks for any advice. I only know a few people in Providence so this is all new to me. Any advice is welcome. I'll report back in.
