We spent the day in Providence, RI during our road trip and had so much fun. Our first stop was Brown University where we strolled the campus and enjoyed the scenery. After that, we stuffed our faces at Spike’s Junkyard Dogs (this pic didn’t make the cut, but here it is for your viewing pleasure). With our bellies full, we toured the art museum at Rhode Island School of Design and checked out a few shops and art galleries in the downtown area.
After walking off the calories from lunch, we tucked into The Dorrance for an amazing dinner that I won’t soon forget. Housed inside of a grand, old-style former bank building, The Dorrance serves up creative New England cuisine in a wonderfully elegant setting. A meal like this may have set us back a pretty penny in NYC (assuming we could get reservations!), so we ate to our hearts’ content and reveled in the personalized attention we received from our waiter. If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend stopping by. The pretzel bread they serve before your meal alone is worth the trip!
