A Day of Local Seafood in Providence: Monkfish at North

North leaves an impression on you. While I recall the food being scrumptious, comforting, and completely restorative when I visited North 3 years ago, what I really remember and savored was the hospitality and humility of it all. They’ve changed locations, but their humility, hospitality, and amazing food (brown buttered monkfish and grilled squid!) is still what makes North a true favorite in Providence.

A Day of Local Seafood in Providence: Dogfish at Dune Brothers

Craig Fear (a fellow a-fish-ionado in western Mass and cookbook author) and I embarked to Providence with an edible “wish list”. Craig’s wish list included 1) experience a couple of variations of the Rhode Island-style chowder as research for his new cookbook on seafood soups, and 2) check out Providence’s hottest new club - I mean fish market! It’s called Fearless Fish Market.

My wish list items were to 1)  try the fried dogfish sandwich at Dune Brothers, and 2) visit the newer location of one of my favorite restaurants, North.
