Restaurant Weeks starts Sunday: Here’s where to get a great deal on a great meal

Restaurant Weeks starts Sunday: Here’s where to get a great deal on a great meal

The annual summer treat is back on July 10. That’s when Providence Restaurant Weeks returns for two weeks of dining specials. They run through July 23. 

There are more than 50 restaurants participating in Providence, Warwick, Cranston, East Greenwich, Johnston, Lincoln, Pawtucket, Smithfield and Warren. Some will feature special offers for breakfast while others have multi-course fixed price lunch and/or dinners. Others are offering their own something special.

There are also other limited-time deals should the concept of three courses be too much for a diner. At Cafe Nuovo, for example, you can get a free dessert with purchase of an entrée.
