With enough screens to broadcast every NFL game, Tinker's Nest situates itself as the go-to place for game day. The pub caters to a sports-loving, beer-drinking audience, keeping 12 brews on tap and more than 50 in bottles. It also maintains a hearty, meat-centric menu that includes two-story burgers and pulled-pork quesadillas. Paying homage to its Irish roots, the pub stocks more than 20 whiskeys and bourbons, as well as a pot o' gold, which is an ancient Irish euphemism for a pail of whiskey.
Brothers Donald and Tony Amaral opened Amaral's Fish & Chips in 1984, and the restaurant has churned out several thousand clam cakes per week ever since. Though the deep-fried delicacies are a popular draw, Amaral's has become especially known for its stuffies?a mixture of quahog, bread crumbs, spices, and vegetables baked right inside the clam's shell. Indeed, this traditional New England clam shack keeps locals happy with its seafood-driven menu, but it's also struck a chord with its sweet Portuguese bread. Much like the Loch Ness Monster, this bread only makes an appearance on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Customers who stop in early enough can actually purchase it while it's still warm.
European and American flags crown Redlefsen's Rotisserie & Grill, symbolizing the cuisine that can be found within. The restaurant specializes in German cuisine, particularly wiener schnitzel. When preparing this dish, cooks observe traditional techniques: they pound out the veal with a German dictionary, and then bread, fry, and accentuate it with lemon, capers, and anchovies. Chefs also create French-inspired chicken Provence and draw inspiration from Italian and Portuguese cookbooks. To complement meals, the restaurant maintains a diverse collection of imported beer, including Leffe Blond and Warsteiner.
Every Wednesday and Thursday in October, the restaurant celebrates Oktoberfest. Accordion players fill the beer hall with traditional melodies and the Alpenblumen Bavarian dancers perform folk dances.
FroyoWorld fills its self-serve stations with a monthly rotating lineup of 12 yogurt and sorbet flavors, including varieties such as dairy free, no sugar added, and nonfat. A selection of up to 140 toppings include candies, fresh fruit, and drizzles of chocolate and caramel. Between spoonfuls, customers can make use of the free WiFi to check emails and look up holistic brain-freeze cures.
Nestled within the King Philip Tower six stories above the town of Bristol, Natalia's In The Sky sits on the very point of a peninsula, providing scenic views of the Rhode Island Sound from Newport to Providence. They compliment these stunning views with fine Italian cuisine. Mountains of linguini in house-made marsala resemble the visible slopes of Mt. Hope, while fresh baked scallops au gratin wallow in a sea of cheese akin to the rippling waters of Narragansett Bay.
Steve Silverstein was tired. Tired of driving into the city just to get a good meal, and tired of paying too much for the food once he got there. So Steve decided to take matters into his own hands and create Not Your Average Joe’s, a chain of internationally inspired restaurants located in the suburbs of Boston, Washington DC, and other major metropolitan areas. Today, there are 18 Not Your Average Joe's locations serving up quality fare without pretension. There, appetizers of asian chicken dumplings and chouriço-stuffed quahogs give way to both casual grill fare and gourmet entrees. Hand-formed burgers come dressed in bacon and one of five cheeses, while stone-hearth pizzas don both classic and unusual toppings such as pistachios and rosemary. And, there are also entrees inspired by cuisines from all over the globe including a five-meat smokehouse jambalaya and a curry- and peanut-anointed vietnamese salmon. Joe's also offers a gluten-free menu, and because each dish is created from scratch the moment it’s ordered, diners can customize meals to accommodate their needs, whether they're following a low-carb, no-carb, or quadruple-carb diet.
