NEWPORT, RI – Owen O’Connor loves his trips to Newport, RI. There is always something fun going on. This time was a trip to Diego’s Mexican Restaurant. They have an amazing mexican flair that you can’t find anywhere else in Providence or RI. The dishes are cooked to perfection and there is a HUGE variety of unique cocktails. The best is probably the hot pepper martini. Absolutely delicious! Diego’s has also just opened up a new bodega out by the beach. They are a small market place selling all kinds of delicious pepper sauces, fresh chips, salsa and Guacamole. A must try! Here’s a link to their website: http://diegosnewport.com/
PROVIDENCE, RI – Owen O’Connor stumbled upon this dining destination last week at lunch time. A friend had recommended it and Owen figured he would give it a try. What a unique experience – basically an inside picnic with booze. Fun! The food was great also. While there was a wide variety of traditional Rhode Island dishes on the menu, Owen O’Connor decided to go for a good old fashioned hamburger. Touch of BBQ sauce and some onion made lunch a real treat. Found a great review about the restaurant as well in the Rhode Island Monthly – http://www.rimonthly.com/Rhode-Island-Monthly/June-2015/Clean-Plate/
Providence, RI – Owen O’Connor was able to get out on the town long enough last week in Rhode Island to visit Mezzo in Providence. The menu was excellent, consisting of lots of great items like Alaskan King Crab Legs, Lobster Bisque, Roast Baffoni Farm’s Chicken and Spaghetti With Lobster Carbonara. After dinner the restaurant turns into a nightclub, which was a perfect way to unwind after a long work week. Excellent dinner and excellent live music – definitely one of the best dining spots in Rhode Island.
