Though only 20 square miles in size, Providence boasts a thriving culinary landscape throughout its more than twenty distinct neighborhoods. One of the best ways to enjoy the many tastes of the city is during its annual Providence Restaurant Weeks. Held from January 12 through the 25th, local restaurants create special menus and offer incredible deals so that residents and visitors alike can try as many eateries as possible. With many within a short distance of River House, here are a few worth trying near our apartments in Providence, Rhode Island:
