Last Sunday Ben, Nicole, Dwaine, Annie, my mom and I went to my favorite restaurant in Providence. Red Stripe is most known for their grilled cheese (with pear, pesto and prosciutto!!) but all of their food is Fantastic. If you are ever in Providence, Rhod Island I suggest taking some time to find Red Stripe and enjoy some mussels, a grilled cheese with tomato soup, or anything else on their menu. The location is 465 Angell Street on the East Side of Providence.
We all enjoyed our afternoon at Red Stripe. Very often when I am there, I feel like I am eating at a cafe in Paris…. and that was the way I felt again on Sunday. We first ordered some appetizers, I enjoyed the Roasted Tomato Risotto which I split with Dwaine, Nicole and Ben. It was so perfect and really warmed us up on a cold and wintery Sunday afternoon…
Ben later ordered a half order of mussels which were enough for the four of us to split. The mussels at Red Stripe are definitely one of their specialties.
Eventually I had a bowl of roasted tomato soup and split a famous grilled cheese sandwich with Ben. It is still my favoite thing on the menu!
Just looking at this picture makes me want to go back to Red Stripe right now to get a tomato soup and grilled cheese!! Check out their menu here – and plan a visit soon!
