Thanks to all of the other posters who made recs for my Providence dinner.
Ended up eating at New River Cafe and it was really excellent.
We just had salads for apps, but they were really nice.
- I had a Choucroute that was sublime. I can not imagine this dish tasting any better. Various meats, and they must have used some riesling, or gewurtz in the broth. Out of this world.
- My friend had venison osso buco which he gave rave reviews.
- Another friend had a perfectly done steak.
- And my wife had a collection of sides that was also very tasty.
We also had sorbet (very tasty). Pineapple, perfectly ripe, and the chocolate crepes filled with dulce de leche and topped with vanilla ice cream, really excellent.
Have to give this place a solid thumbs up!
