Benjamin Franklin said it best when he said "By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." Take that to heart as you prepare yourselves for the amazing food you'll be trying during Providence Restaurant Weeks. All of the participating restaurants are listed along with their menus, so check them out, make a list, PREPARE! 

Leave room for dessert

While we're quoting great figures, Jacques Torres said it best, "Life is short. Eat dessert first." While we can't promise you that the restaurants will serve dessert first, we can promise that most will have it ready for you! From cannolis to crostata, tres leche to tirimisu, and all the gooeyness in between, there's a dessert out there for you. 

Bring a friend

Sharing food with friends is the best way to learn about someone, especially by their choices. Be sure to choose the right friend just like you choose the right menu

Forget that work lunch

With three-course lunches for $16.95, you can forget the leftover meatloaf. Grab a bite to eat out for lunch and maybe save some leftovers for lunch the next day!

The perfect date

I'm a pretty cheap date usually, but a three-course dinner for between $29.95 and $49.95? And even some two-for-one deals? Wow! Add that bottle of wine to make it a perfect date night and still have money left over to tip your favorite Uber driver.
