After enjoying drinks, light appetizers and live jazz from Phil Gruppuso, piano and John DeBossu, bass, at the opening reception at The Dorrance Sunday evening, explore one of Travel + Leisure’s 2015 Best Cities for Foodies! The Dorrance is an easy 5-minute walk from the hotel, and there are lots of great restaurants in the immediate area. Here are a few of our favorites. (You can find a longer list, with walking directions, on the Conference website.)

For travel-weary conference goers looking only for a quick bite, several well-known chain restaurant options are available just over the footbridge from the Omni to the Providence Place Mall. Looping shuttle transportation will be available between the hotel and the Dorrance from 5:30-8.

Red Fin Crudo + Kitchen Tapas-style restaurant with a focus on seafood. Fun tidbit for reality TV fans: the owners are former contestants on Chopped and Master Chef season 2.

Faust Hofbrauhaus Providence’s only German Beer Hall, located in the hip Dean Hotel. Offering sausages, traditional sides, amazing house-made pretzels, and a great beer list.

Providence Coal Fired Pizza Not just your typical pizza joint, PCFP offers great atmosphere and delicious salads and coal-fired pizza.

Local 121 Splurge on entrees or nibble on small plates and snacks at the bar in this beautifully restored space. The menu is centered around locally sourced ingredients.

Harry’s Burger Bar One of the best burgers in town. Laid back atmosphere, reasonable prices, and according to their motto: “No Crap on Tap.”

Sura Korean & Japanese Cuisine Go here for your sushi, noodle or bibimbap fix.

The Eddy Good for a light snack and a yummy cocktail.

The Wild Colonial One of the best bars in Providence (and one of the 50 best bars in America, according to Esquire Magazine). Small food and snack menu. Pub Trivia is happening at 7 Sunday night – see how your trivia skills measure up to all of the Brown & RISD regulars!

And although it’s a bit farther away, don’t forget about Providence’s Little Italy–Federal Hill! Federal Hill is known for its wide array of restaurants and dining experiences. There are many Italian restaurants here, along with other traditional and contemporary cuisines–not to mention amazing pastry shops and bakeries. Before you head up, take a look at TripAdvisor’s  “Best 30 Restaurants on Federal Hill.”

Happy eating!
