Clams at KitchenBar

The Blogetarian’s Review: KitchenBar

Last week our friend Marla wanted to go out for a martini at 4:45 when the husband and I got out of work. We all agreed, 4:45 was the time. At 3:30 we each got a picture of a half drank Ketel One dirty martini with extra green olives from the KitchenBar on Hope Street in Providence. Was this a test? Do we drop everything and rush out to start our Friday night early? No, we both have to work so Marla can wait until the time we had agreed upon.

The Blogetarian’s Review: The Grange

This weekend our friend from California came to visit. My partner and I always take her out to dinner and we usually like to bring her to someplace new, different and amazing and its really not that difficult having so much right here in Providence.

Rhode Island Round-Up 2015

Celebrated Austin, Texas Chef Sonya Coté of Eden East is returning to Rhode Island this summer for the second annual Rhode Island Round-Up dinner series produced by Eat Drink RI on August 12th and 13th. Coté, a Rhode Island native, will partner with Chef Chris Kleyla of Bristol’s newest restaurant, the Statesman Tavern, to prepare the dinners. The culinary experiences will be held at Horseshoe Farm, a private estate surrounded by miles of fences along the coastal countryside in Westerly, RI.

Coté brings her acclaimed bold Texas flavors easterly, merging with Kleyla’s passion for showcasing the bounty of summer in New England—locally landed seafood, beef & pork from Blackbird Farm, and the best ingredients from Rhode Island farmers and purveyors, such as Moonrose Farm and Four Town Farm. Dinner will be paired with seasonal cocktails, including Texas-based Deep Eddy Vodka.

Produced by Eat Drink RI, the “Rhode Island Round-Up” will recreate the unequaled dining experience that Eden East provides guests each weekend on the grounds of Austin’s Springdale Farm. “Eden East defies description,” wrote TRIBEZA magazine. “It’s like a high-end picnic—and there’s truly nothing like it in Austin right now.”
