‘Providence Restaurant Weeks’ Start

Providence Restaurant Weeks began as an effort to get people out of the house during a typically slow month for the restaurant business. Many of these establishments took a hit during the December bridge closing and have some catching up to do — all you have to do to help is order delicious food and eat it. Just scanning the list of the 73 restaurants participating restaurants reminded me of places I have meant to visit. The event runs now through Saturday, January 20th.

Enjoy two weeks of dining special offers brought to you by Providence Restaurant Weeks. Participating area restaurants will feature deals and specials for lunch and dinner, with some offering prix fixe menus. They may also be serving up breakfast, signature cocktails and more.

Seen here is the New York System in Olneyville, designated an American Classic by the James Beard Foundation back in 2014. Unclear whether the New York System has designed a prix fixe menu for the event, or will just stick with their daily low low prices (see below).

Feel free to tip generously; the smaller bill does not make those plates lighter nor move the kitchen closer.


The sign reads: “Have what your [sic] having on your mind & the money in your hand.” We recommend three all the way and a coffee milk. They are open seven days.

(The restaurant spells it WEINERS on the neon sign out front, while it appears as WIENERS everywhere else. Both spellings are acceptable Scrabble words.)

  1. I’m not opposed to Restaurant Week (I’m constantly dining out so I appreciate the deals), but it does start to feel like Restaurant Week is every other week these days…
