‘Al Fresco On The Hill’ Starts

‘Al Fresco on the Hill’ returns to Atwells Avenue, Friday, May 14th; a portion of the street will be closed to traffic between 5pm and 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays through the summer and into September. According to the Boston Globe:

”Al Fresco on The Hill,” which launched last year as a way to encourage Rhode Islanders to safely visit restaurants during the COVID-19 pandemic, will run for 20 weeks, starting May 14. At least 22 restaurants plan to participate, according to Rick Simone, the executive director of the Federal Hill Commerce Association.

From WPRI:

This year, Simone said around two dozen restaurants will be participating and guests will once again have to make reservations in advance.

“As the season progresses, we will be able to add entertainment and we will be spreading it out so it really begins to feel like a European-style of Al Fresco,” he said. “Very peaceful, very enjoyable. We think the entertainment will add to it.”
