As some business colleagues had promised Owen OConnor and Bard Moshagen thoroughly enjoyed their dining experience at Cook and Brown Public House in Providence, Rhode Island. The restaurant is located on the East Side of the City – not too far away from their Providence hotel. Favorites on the menu included MEXICAN STYLE CORN ON THE COB, PAN ROASTED COD, NARRAGANSETT CREAMERY RICOTTA GNOCCHI. The most delicious item of the evening, however, was the CHARCUTERIE BOARD. The CHARCUTERIE BOARD paired perfectly with a great red off the wine list. Owen and Bard definitely plan to return. Cook and Brown in Providence, Rhode Island Website: www.cookandbrown.com
Owen OConnor took the opportunity while in Newport at a business meeting last week to have dinner at Newport, RI’s famous White Horse Tavern, apparently the oldest tavern in the United States! Imagine that, right here in little Rhode Island. The meal was amazing – Owen started with Semolina Fried Local Oysters, then moved on to a perfectly cooked Braised Boneless Short Rib. While the food was excellent, the craft cocktails were even better. The creative use of bitters by the genius bartenders really makes this restaurant stand out from the rest in Rhode Island, and certainly from the other Providence, RI dining destinations.
