Summer makes everything better, even food and drink. The days are long, the living is (or should be easy) and we’ve made it through another pandemic winter. This should be an extra sweet Memorial Day to welcome summer.
In Rhode Island, great food adventures start with passion. But add in some local ingredients and what a dish you have! Of course, those many, many ocean views don’t hurt either.
A lot of new people have moved to Rhode Island over the past two years. No doubt they are exploring the great food and drink culture. But if not, let this guide be a starting point.
This list is also meant to help if you have company coming to visit. Either explore with them, or hand it over and send them off to delight in the flavors of Rhode Island.
Go to a Gourmet Market
Neapolis, 60 South County Commons Way, Wakefield, neapolisri.com, is a most wonderful market. Ready to take home are homemade gelato, Roman pizza, sold by the slice, prepared dinners and soups, unique cheeses and freshly baked Italian pastries.
