After the Art Festival, Try a Specialty Dish

In our continuing series on the 53rd Annual Wickford Art Festival, the North Kingstown Blog reached out to a few local restaurants to find out what their specialty dish or drink was.  We also did some field work and sampled great local coffee, sandwiches, and drinks from our many great local establishments.  Whether you are from North Kingstown or enjoying our town for the Wickford Arts Festival, we hope you will support our local restaurants, coffee shops, and pizza parlors.  Here are a few of the responses from the restaurants themselves:

Sonoma Bistro and WineBar

7366 Post Rd North Kingstown


Our Signature Summer Dish is our:
Warm Butter Poached Lobster roll.

Judy Salvadore, the Wickford Art Festival Director, would also like to acknowledge the following restaurants who have helped to sponsor the 53rd Annual Wickford Art Festival:

Gillians Ale House – 7835 Post Rd.

Tavern By The Sea – 64 Brown St.

Beach Rose Cafe – 85 Brown St.

Tate’s Restaurant (new to Wickford Village) Brown St.

On a personal note, my son and his friends frequent “The Place” for pizza, subs, and calzones right in Wickford Village.  If you are in Wickford Village, I have always had great success at the Beach Rose Cafe and Tavern by the Sea for lunch and what I call “postcard” type views of the harbor.  If you have a large group that love New York Style Pizza, find out more about “Big Rhody” at Pier Pizza. Plus, there are a ton of locally owned restaurants, coffee shops, and pizza parlors just outside of town. You can check the North Kingstown Chamber of Commerce’s business directory for a list of food choices by clicking here.

If you are a local restaurant and would like to submit a specialty food or drink, feel free to contact me at 401-583-7171.  And thank you for supporting your local restaurants.
