Coming in with my wife to Rhode Island in roughly a month, we will be there for 72 hours and bringing our dog.
We are staying in Warwick and will have a car, happy to drive ~30 minutes in any direction.
We both mostly eat seafood (very little meat, no beef) and preference goes to any spots on the water. Italian and Mexican are our other favorite cuisines.
If there's any other local specialties we should look out for other than seafood, or any interesting food trucks, etc. we are open for ideas.
Looking mostly for casual, but would like one nicer rec for Friday or Saturday night. We went to Newport 5 years ago, so if there's anything new there worth checking out, we had a great time there.
We also plan to take our dog one afternoon to Compass Rose Beach which we read is dog friendly, so could also use a rec for some place to get sandwiches, etc. for a picnic.
