Cattails City Grill impresses patrons with a menu of fine fare that's served without the nose-in-the-air pretension generally accompanying all things cattail. Begin your belly's beguine with one of Cattails' signature pizzas, such as the margherita ($10), the mushroom and salami ($10.50), or the arugula and prosciutto ($11); or opt for a seafood starter such as the garlic shrimp ($10) or Narragansett Bay littlenecks with chorizo, onions, and garlic in a pomodoro sauce ($10). Noodle-craving neurologists can strike a happy nerve with pasta dishes such as lobster ravioli in a pink vodka sauce ($22.50), and baked shrimp and shells ($21) punched up with tomato cream sauce, spinach, and roasted red peppers. Cattails' carnivore-catering entrees steal away potential attendees of chicken, pig, and cow family reunions with dishes such as sautéed gorgonzola chicken "under a brick" ($18), served over potatoes and spinach and topped with tomatoes and a creamy cheese sauce; pork chops and littleneck clams ($23) with olives and roasted potatoes in a spicy garlic and wine sauce; or the veal tenderloin ($19.50), also served over potatoes and spinach and topped with prosciutto and vinaigrette. Fish options include salmon ($21) and pan-seared tilapia ($16.50). Cap off your Cattails culinary caper with the restaurant's acclaimed Portuguese sweet bread pudding, recently found to be the solar system's true center, relegating the sun to nothing more than a minor answer on an obscure episode of Jeopardy.
Enjoy a glass of wine or a masterfully mixed martini from the bar, and switch your body's relaxers to "on" in Cattails' calm and comfortable dining room, as the grill's staff of attentive and accommodating servers tend to your every nourishment need. Get your Groupon and visit Cattails City Grill for elegant eats consumed casually.
- Step in from the bustle of East Providence, look around, and your first impression might be of studied serenity — this place wants to calm you down…There’s indirect lighting, but this place is not too dim…The waitstaff is outfitted in white shirts and blue jeans, an explicit promise of friendliness as well as formality. – Bill Rodriguez, Boston Phoenix
- With Pork and Clams A Minha Mineira, [Bruno] takes Portuguese flavorings and pairs the meat and shellfish with roast potatoes, pickled green peppers and roasted mixed olives. He offers a chicken dish called Brick Gorgonzola on which he bakes half a chicken under a brick. For veal tenderloins, he slices the meat into medallions and serves it over mashed potatoes and spinach with a lemon caper vinaigrette. – Gail Ciampa, Providence Journal
