My girlfriend an I just spent an hour driving around Providence looking for a nice dinner. It wasn't a special occasion, just a fine meal someone else has to cook and clean up after. We really had a hard time finding anything we truly believed in. We have eaten in almost all the independant restaurants in Providence. No one offers a true special enviornment, except maybe Gracie's on Federal Hill. My question to everyone who will listen: what do you want in a restaurant, really? What is missing from the Providence or wherever, scene?
