Calamari? Del’s frozen lemonade? Johnnycakes? Stuffies?! Rhode Island’s food scene takes you on a diverse culinary journey, so bring an appetite and a sense of adventure. The state’s proximity to the ocean provides amazing seafood like oysters, scallops and squid; while waves of immigrants have lent the state an array of authentic eateries. Sprinkle in the one of the nation’s top culinary educators – Johnson & Wales University – and you have the recipe for one outstanding dining scene. As the birthplace of the diner, we are also home to Federal Hill in Providence, recognized as one of the top “Little Italy’s” in the country. From clam shacks and food trucks to James Beard award-nominated chefs and an impressive craft beer culture and vineyards that will feel transport you, Rhode Island is a true foodie’s delight.
