The Newest Providence Eateries

Providence is rated one of the best foodie cities by Zagat, and Travel + Leisure among others. Everyone knows that food is just as important as your lodging accommodations. Therefore we have compiled a list of the newest restaurants and pubs in Providence. Venture into these great new spots and let us know which is your favorite!

Now Open

Like No Udder left its 170 Ives Street site in Providence after the landlord did not renew their lease. However, after a lot of hard work, owner Karen Krinsky has relocated to a newly refurbished facility at 783 Hope Street, close to the Providence Vegan Deli. They are already open for business, with rotating kinds of soft serve ice cream, sixteen flavors of hard serve, and delicious plant-based baked items.

Eric Brown, who previously owned the popup diner Thick Neck inside the Dean Hotel, has opened Frank & Laurie’s at 110 Doyle St. in Providence with his partner, Sarah Watts. The new restaurant is located in the former Rebelle artisan bagels shop, and it is already a neighborhood retreat offering a variety of daytime offerings centered on the cooking practices Eric has adopted over a decade of working in fine dining establishments and working closely with local farmers.


Ellie’s has left its current location and will reopen in the former Kleos space. The beloved bakery closed over the weekend and is taking a little break before reopening in its new location, which is currently under construction. The Parisian-style cafe, which is a sibling restaurant to the fine dining mainstay Gracie’s, has found new digs at the Alice Building on Westminster Street owned by Cornish Associates (the same company that owns InDownCity). Or, as Rhode Islanders might say, “where Kleos used to be”—the Greek eatery discreetly abandoned the premises in February. They look forward to reopening in the Summer of 2024.

Coming Soon

This summer, Dune Brothers intends to open a new sit-down restaurant and fish market at Fox Point as part of its expansion. The seasonal shanty will be open from early spring through late fall, while the new market and restaurant at 170 Ives Street will be open year-round. The goal of Dune Brothers is to introduce visitors to the underappreciated fish kinds that they sell at their downtown shack; however, customers will now be able to buy their seafood directly and prepare it themselves.

Good news is on the horizon for Oberlin’s former Providence location. The proprietor of Tuxpan Taqueria in Central Falls, Diego Alcantar, intends to open Cielito, a Mexican eatery, in that location. Additionally, Tuxpan Taqueria just received a semi-finalist nomination for the James Beard Foundation Award’s Best New Restaurant category. This summer, Cornish Associates is pleased to welcome Cielito to the Alice Building. Get more information on the opening and read Diego’s own reflections on opening Cielito at The song “Cielito Lindo” by Vicente Fernández is referenced in the restaurant’s name. The Mexican grocery store owned by Alcantar’s parents was also called Cielito.
