Food Scene
Unbelievable Italian cuisine. You do NOT need to go to Federal Hill with this gem within walking distance. And they make the best ginger-mint martini! Try the shrimp toast appetizer.

Ice Cream, Coffee, Breakfast, Lunch and now Dinner Amazing floats and smoothies. Casual, kid-friendly with outdoor tables and a Free Library :-). Great place to have a late night treat with the kids or after a delicious dinner up the road. Right next to Lippitt Park.

The line may be long but only because it is worth it. And it moves very swiftly. The best sconces and muffins around. Homemade bread made in a mill building just up the road in Pawtucket. It is an East Side institution.

Fine French Dining with a casual Wurst Kitchen for a quick and delicious lunch. Seating outside the Wurst Kitchen window. For foodies this is a must. They make all their own sausages in house. I don't eat meat anymore but when I did, I never had a hot dog that was on par with the Wurst kitchen. The restaurant features local artists on a regular basis. Right across from the park. Go on Saturday and catch the Farmers Market and PVD Artisans market right across the street.

Best authentic Vietnamese restaurant around. The setting is not the most desirable ( parking lot next to Ocean State Job Lot) but the freshness and authenticity of the food makes up for it and the inside attractive enough. Huge noodle soup bowls and very affordable!

Great Single Art/alternative theater smack in the middle of bustling Thayer Street. Old theater with all of it's original charm. Grab a bite at any of the dozens of food joints right outside it's door. We love Andreas ( right next door~ awesome Greek food) and Kabob and Curry ( right across the street).
