This restaurant at the confluence of the Providence and Moshassuck Rivers is considered one of Providence's best New American eateries. Some of the items off the menu at New Rivers American Bistro include raw oysters and seafood, charcuterie, small plates, pasta as well as entrees like ratatouille, hangar steak, pork ribs or striped bass. It's located near on the river's edge, a very short walk from downtown hotels and only a few blocks to College Hill.
Cafe Nuovo presents a contemporary fusion of American, Italian and French favorites under a strict ethos to never mask ingredients with too much cream, butter or sauce, where the items should speak for themselves. A couple of the innovative plates include steak tartare and the duck breast in a peach compote. It's located on the ground floor of the Citizens Bank Building and during great weather, the outdoor piazza offers excellent views of Providence River while you enjoy your drinks or meal.
Hemenway's is a restaurant along the edge of the Providence River that specializes in seafood, in fact, it's one of College Hill's most beloved oyster houses. Since Providence is close to New England's greatest seaports like New Bedford, Boston, Gloucester, Cape Elizabeth and many more, Hemenway's is where you'll find the fruits of the Atlantic. The restaurant is dedicated to the founder's grandfather, Charles M. Hemenway, a local and big-city entrepreneur who loved New England. Needless to say, almost every ingredient on the menu can be sourced from local farms, fisheries and producers, just ask your waiter and they will know.
