Classes are out, fine dining is in: where to eat after graduation

Elizabeth Van Liew

Classes are out and graduation is coming. Realistically you should have already made those reservations but fear not, I know finals are coming, I know we’re not all locals and I also know some fabulous recommendations.

Take it from a girl with a family that’s never had a knack for cooking, here’s a bit of guidance as to where you should find yourself post graduation.


(P.S. none of these are terribly local but much worth it)

Trattoria Romana- Italian

3 Wake Robin Rd Lincoln, RI

Try artisanal Italian and a fine dining experience. Bonus points, they have a vegetarian menu!


Spain of Narragansett- Spanish

1144 Ocean Rd, Narragansett, RI

Spanish cuisine with a kiss of mediterranean. Indoor or outdoor dining available, fingers crossed for warm weather.


Matunuck Oyster Bar- Seafood

629 Succotash Rd, South Kingstown, RI

Locally sourced produce with a waterfront view, could you ask for more?


Joe Marzilli’s Old Canteen- Italian

120 Atwells Ave, Providence, RI

Founded in 1956 and located in Historical Federal Hill this option provides a meal and access to activities for later.


Camille’s- Italian

71 Bradford St, Providence, RI

Also located on historic Federal Hill and a dining landmark since 1914. The lux feel and classical dishes provides the perfect ambiance to your special night


Congratulations to all. You’ve made it this far, now let’s hope you make it to dinner. Reservations are an endangered species at this point in the game. I know you think your plates are full, but without my recommendations they really might end up being empty. Rooting for you and rooting for fine dining.
