The Best of Providence, RI...

Garris | Oct 17, 2004 01:29 AM

Hi all,

The Providence Phoenix is doing a reader voted "Best of RI" dining contest. Knowing very well that devoted foodies often disagree with the results of such polls, I figured I'd post their categories, with some of my own to follow.

There's only one new rule I'm employing... Your votes should be best of *Providence* (and if you have a different one for the larger RI area, put it in parenthesis afterwards).

Let's hear what everyone thinks! Let the votes begin!
