from eat.shop rhode island:
New Rivers was home to my first Alice Waters-style eureka moment. That's when I realized that even in Rhode Island you can collect some lettuce from this fella's farm, a few oysters from that guy's aqua bed, and maybe find a nice free-range chicken native to Tiverton. Bruce puts all this together masterfully, and creates food that is uniquely and deliciously Rhode Island. And thank you, Bruce, for providing a romantic setting to eat this magical cuisine.
