Rhode Island Gems

When you live somewhere for 25 years, you know the local gems, whether they’re restaurants, local boutiques or auto repair shops. South County is filled with wonderful small businesses that give the area charm while delivering stellar service.

Restaurants

My family loves eating at restaurants too so I’ve included some recommendations of my favorite local spots. Crazy Burger – 401.783.1810 Trattoria Romana-401.792.4933 Matunuck Oyster Bar – 401.783.4202 – Any of the local oysters, and a cold beer. Mews Tavern – 401.783.3743 – Plenty of beers to choose from. Spain Restaurant – 401.783.9770 The Coast Guard House – 401.789.0700 – One of the best views you’ll find. Pier Pizza – 401.792.8333. Capriccio – 401.421.1320 – Old world white linen service. Thames Street Kitchen – 401.846.9100 Perro Salado – 401.619.4777 – The jalapeño margarita, if you’re brave enough. Castle Hill – 401.849.3885 – Anything off the dinner menu works. Add a cottage for the night and have lobster hash in the morning and you have a special occasion.
