From Open Table:
Rhode Island may be the smallest state, but it is home to a delicious selection of cuisine types at the state's many cafes, restaurants, and bars. Brown bread is a food commonly served at many contemporary American restaurants. Of course, you can’t go wrong with the seafood dishes that can be found at the Italian, American and seafood venues. Caldo verde, or kale soup, is iconic to the area as well and is available at the local Portuguese dining establishments, reflecting the state's large Portuguese community. Another way to get a taste of the local cuisine is to order the stuffies or the Rhode Island calamari. To try out a dish that's a little bit sweeter, you could stop into an Italian restaurant and taste the appetizing doughboys.
