  • Bacaro Restaurant Providence

    .1m away

    The Bacaro experience is as heavy or light as the customer chooses it to be. Whether a night out is about meeting some friends over a wonderful bottle of wine with some prosciutto and grilled figs or summer melons or a full service dining experience, Brian and Jennifer have created the environment that fulfills the senses. Bácaro Restaurant was founded in 2007 and resides in the historic Charles Tanner Building along the riverfront in downtown Providence. Named after the Bácari of Venice, Bácaro focuses on Italian cuisine, applying a simple approach to indigenous ingredients. Owners Brian Kingsford & Jennifer Matta, brought their dream of opening a restaurant to fruition after working almost two decades together in the industry. The name Bácaro comes from what the Venetians refer to their small wine bars as, “Bácari” named so after the God of wine Bácchus. In Venice, these lively wine bars focus on small bites of food called “Cicchetti”, pronounced “chee-keh-tee” Bácaro is a multi-conceptual restaurant offering customers the unique experience of a Venetian Bácari, a Roman Sálumeria, and an Upscale Restaurant. The experience can be as simple as a board of mixed sálumi, cheeses & olives with Venetian tapas and wine to a multi-course fine dining experience.

    This is the fourth restaurant that we’ve owned together. Over the last 20 years we have been in the Boston area, upstate NY, and finally Providence. This is the food we love to eat and prepare. We think this is going to be the best one yet. We hope you think so too. -Lauren & Susan

  • Hemenway's Providence

    .1m away

    Come to Hemenway's Seafood Grill & Oyster Bar to experience a Providence classic that boasts time-honored recipes for ocean-fresh seafood. You remember...for your graduation, it was our Lobster Pie. For your first anniversary, it was Oysters Hemenway's. Every year for your birthday, you celebrate with our Alaskan King Crab Legs. Brief History An adventure-loving fellow with a passion for fishing and a knack for hospitality inspired his grandson to found Hemenway’s. Over 20 years later, his spirit and enthusiasm still motivate our dedicated team. “Charles Martin Hemenway (1886-1964) was an avid sportsman and fisherman. He was a pioneer in entrepreneurial spirit yet possessed only a seventh grade education. Destined for success, he became President of the Moxie Beverage Company, the New Haven Railroad, and the Varsity-Royale Record Company. He introduced soft-serve ice cream to New York World's Fair in 1939 and owned the Flying Lobster Restaurant on 52nd Street in New York, where he flew in fresh lobsters daily from Nova Scotia. His passion for fishing took him throughout North America, but his favorite trip was to the Miramichi River in New Brunswick, Canada, during salmon season. This restaurant is dedicated to my late grandfather, Charles M. Hemenway, who will always remain an inspiration.” -Edward P. Grace III, Founder
