Flower Show

Does anyone have a recommendation for a nice place for late lunch after visiting the Flower Show in Providence. We are planning on going on Thurs. Feb 19 or Fri. Feb 20.

These sound great, got the coupons. Do you know if it is a doable walk in the winter?

This would a doable walk in the winter - Mediterraneo is .45 miles from the convention center and caffe dulce vita is just a tiny bit farther. There is a considerable amount of traffic though right around the convention center and you will have to walk over 1-95 to reach Federal Hill where these restaurants are, so you might consider hopping in a cab - wouldn't be more than a 3-5 minute ride though!

Hope this helps!

Katie, this is bordering on advertising/self promotion, as you are only recommending places that are on your site.

I've been doing some looking around, how is the Trinity Brew House?

I would be a bit suspect about her recommending Dulce so highly - the best I have ever heard is that it is ok and that Fed Hill has much better places. And please stay away from Trinity Brew House. The brews they make are mediocre to bad. Go to Union Station for better beer, food and atmosphere.

There are some nice options right downtown....Local 121 is a new, somewhat upscale restaurant serving locally based foods....there is also a good Italian restaurant on Westminster St.--Mama Theresa or something like that. These are closer than the Hill. Frankly, with the looks of that newish Chinese restaurant, I'm disappointed with Atwells, although I'm dying to try that authentic Mexican place way down at the end.

Are there any unbiased recommendations? We will stay away from the Brew House, too bad, cause it looked like a great old building. We would like to be able to walk, but really don't know too much about the city.
