Don’t lament over your departure from six weeks of mom’s home cooking. Luckily for us, nearly 100 restaurants in Providence and Massachusetts are participating in Providence Restaurant Week, making the transition from home life just a little bit easier. From Sunday January 13th through Saturday January 26th, these high-end eateries will be offering three-course prix-fixe lunches and dinners, as well as two-for-one specials. Now that a lot of us are back on campus with nothing to do, there’s no better time to take advantage of Providence dining. For more information, a list of participating restaurants, and all of the drool-worthy menus, check out Go Providence’s website. Welcome back, and happy feasting!

Chow Down Brown: Providence Restaurant Week (get on this)


Hi again Browntown! It’s strange how quickly time flies. Those 5 weeks spent eating home cooking (or, in my case, that semester spent eating every crumb of food in Paris) flash before our eyes, and before we know it, we’re back in PVD to fend for ourselves whenever mealtime rolls around.

Luckily, Providence Restaurant Week is here to rescue us from the ennui of ramen and the Ratty. This year, Travel + Leisure named Providence the #2 food city in the country (second only to my hometown, New Orleans), and over 80 restaurants are coming out in full force to drive the point home for this citywide food hurrah.

Participating restaurants are offering three-course lunches for $14.95 and three-course dinners for $29.95, plus some of them are offering 2-for-1 deals. “Restaurant Week” is a bit of a misnomer (the whole deal actually lasts a fortnight), but it ends soon – January 28 – so don’t delay! Scramble now to take advantage of it before this opportunity, like your winter break and this hilarious snow, melts away. Check out the official website for menus, a full list of participating restaurants, and more information.
