The Clean Plate | Unique Providence Dining Experience

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 –


Bouchards Restaurant | Owen O’Connor Dines Out in Rhode Island

Newport, RI – Baard Moshagen and Owen O’Connor had dinner at Bouchards Restaurant in Newport, RI last weekend.  The menu consisted of amazing items such as Vol au Vent d’Asperges et de Homard (Asparagus and Lobster in Puff Pastry, with a Lemon Beurre Blanc), Salade d’Endives, Roquette et Saumon Fumé (Arugula and Endive Salad with House Smoked Salmon, Goat Cheese, Lemon Olive Oil Dressing), and Filet de Porc aux Poivrons Rouge, Chèvre et l’Epinard (Pork Tenderloin with Spinach, Goat Cheese and Red Peppers, wrapped in Puff Pastry, with a Roasted Garlic Demi glace Sauce).  Short of actually going to France and finding one of it’s finest restaurants, this was downright incredible Rhode Island dining.
