"The first one was so good we added another" was the motto of the Providence/Warwick Conventions and Visitors Bureau when diners flooded the capital city's top eateries in the off month of July. July in Providence is one of the slowest months of the year as people take vacations and avoid the scorching downcity heat. Restaurant Week was started to help bring some life to these less than crowded streets. The idea was so successful that a second week was quickly added. The concept is simple and effective: during lunch hours, every restaurant offers a 3-course lunch menu (usually with choices in each course!) for the amazing price of $14.95 and a 3-course dinner menu for $29.95. All the restaurants offer their usual menus in addition, so if you want the pre fixe and your significant other wants the dish she orders every time...no problem. With more than 90 restaurants participating we promise you won't be bored! www.goprovidence.com or check the individual restaurant websites.
