The seventh edition of Providence Restaurant Weeks is coming up July 8-21, when nearly 100 restaurants will offer three-course, fixed price dinners for $29.95 and/or lunches for $14.95. Some restaurants are offering meals for two for those prices. Nearly two dozen spots are beyond Providence, bringing the chance to explore a new restaurant at lower than usual prices to the suburbs.
The Providence Warwick Convention & Visitors Bureau (PWCVB), which organizes the event, has partnered with two websites to add social media to the list of enticements. On, online reviewers can "check in" via smartphones at participating venues to receive special offers good for a return visit. At, those who upload photos of their recommendations at any of the locations will be eligible to win gift cards from participating restaurants.
There are restrictions at a few restaurants, such as not offering the deals on weekends. For those restaurants who've posted their menus, you'll find such details here. Keep in mind tax and gratuity are generally not included. But in some cases drinks are. Menus can be found at Many are there, but more will be posted by restaurants as the weeks draw closer.
