In Providence, two restaurants shine
Local food and craft cocktails at Cook & Brown, the Dorrance
Providence has a rich dining scene of its own. Like Boston, the city is currently riding the twin waves of highly local food and craft cocktails. Two restaurants in this mold are particularly worth the drive, both winners of various accolades: Cook & Brown Public House, which recently celebrated its two-year anniversary, and the Dorrance, which opened in late fall. Both showcase the skills of talented chefs and bartenders. Cook & Brown is cozier, while the Dorrance is elegant.
