Hemenways Restaurant | Providence, Rhode Island

This was one of the amazing highlights of our trip this past weeks d to Rhode Island Comic Con. My Aunt and Uncle took me and Roosevelt out for this amazing dinner at Hemenways in Providence and it is some of the best seafood and wine I have had.

We then walked along the river and saw the beautiful waterfire I will include pictures, it was such a nice walk and the weather was perfect and brisk.

Scallops wrapped in Bacon, calamari with hot peppers, and stuffed clams.

Flavors were perfect. Scallops were absolutely fantastic. Bacon crispy. Clams were spiced just right and the hot peppers we’re a great compliment to the calamari.

Our dishes were both pasta based.  Simply superb and fresh.

All the seafood was extremely fresh and flavorful and sauces complimented each other well.

For dessert we ordered the Key Lime Pie, it was simply the best one I have ever had.

My aunt and uncle had the fish of the day and fresh lobster with a side of Yukon potatoes.  For dessert they had the Pumpkin Cheesecake. I had a bite of the cheesecake, amazing.

 

 

 

The walk afterwards was incredibly fulfilling, the Waterfire is for the veterans and you can actually go out and are light the bonfires.  It was so beautiful.

Such a wonderful night this past Saturday.

I recommend going to dinner at Hemenways and enjoying some amazing food. You won’t regret it.

 

Eat Well,

Timna
