Dining & Restaurants in Providence

How does a small city like Providence become such a nationally-renowned food destination? It may date back to the waves of immigrants who came from Europe and lands East with their tried and true recipes and imported products. Or maybe it's the influence of the internationally-acclaimed Culinary Institute at Johnson & Wales University. Or it could be the availability of an abundance of fresh New England seafood and produce.

Most likely, it's the combination of these key ingredients which have grown Providence into the food destination it is today. Just ask the attendees of the International Association of Culinary Professionals, who recently held their annual convention in Providence. According to IACP President Janie Hibler, "We got a huge attendance for this conference. In fact, over 1,500 culinary professionals attended in Providence, compared to 900 the previous year." Top culinary magazines, food writers and critics have been raving about Providence for years now, and it's not about to change. Some of the country's finest chefs reside in Providence, creating mouthwatering meals in the many world-class restaurants throughout the city. Several of the city's dining establishments are considered the finest in the nation, and new ones open every year.

Patrons can dine on a dozen different types of native seafood in Providence, from the clams which make the chowder famous to oyster bars and fresh fish. Restaurants offer dishes from such nationalities as Italian, French, American and Thai, from authentic ethnic cuisine to Fusion and Continental, you just can't go wrong in Providence.
