This summer, we shook up the formula for Providence Restaurant Weeks in response to these crazy times, and are excited to bring you Stay Local. Eat Well. Running now through Sept. 12, restaurants are offering a wide range of choices and flexibility for you, including takeout, breakfast, lunch and dinner offers, signature cocktails to go and more. Here are a few tips on how to get the most out of these amazing four weeks of foodie bliss.

Prepare, prepare, prepare

With more than 60 different restaurants to choose from, it can get pretty overwhelming figuring out where you’re going to eat. The good news is no matter what you're in the mood for, there's surely something that'll catch your eye. Don't waste time at the table scouring the menu when it can be used for something better, like ordering another basket of bread.

Takeout isn't just pizza

Takeout just isn’t pizza anymore. Well, it’s amazing pizza AND plenty of other full entrees that you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home. 

Be sure to check out the Chef's Choice

A lot of restaurants are featuring a Chef’s Choice selection — a kind of wild card offer — such as a signature drink or gift card special, and other fun things like that.

Breakfast, lunch or dinner?

Why not all three? Many restaurants are featuring not only lunch and dinner specials, but breakfast as well. Treat yourself to some comfort food before your 10 a.m. Zoom call that could have been an email.

Share your meal with us
