Partner Update

Our very own Metacom Kitchen, Red Fin Crudo + Kitchen, The Salted Slate and The Dorrance participated in a recent James Beard Foundation benefit dinner, aptly named "Summer in Rhode Island." Kudos to these chefs for representing the Ocean State at this prestigious event.  

The Generous Pour is a tradition at The Capital Grille, and this summer they’re honoring some of wine’s biggest risk takers. With selections from the Alps to California, these wines are sure to please. Reservations are booking up fast, so book a table today.
