Online guides to local restaurants:

The best restaurants in Providence are sometimes overlooked, considering that Rhode Island is the nation's smallest state, and Providence is so close to culinary powerhouses like New York and Boston. But don't make that mistake, because this is one of the most interesting food scenes in the Northeast. Besides all the seafood -- it's said that no resident is more than 30 miles from the ocean -- here's where you'll find a blend of the foods of old New England, long-time immigrant communities, and Industrial-era Americana -- along with plenty of sophistication thanks to the presence of culinary school Johnson & Wales.
