Providence provides residents and visitors with a plethora of dining choices. From upscale Italian on Federal Hill to the more eclectic flavors of Thayer Street, the city has something to offer every gourmet, except, of course, the indecisive. Certain local spots become staples in the PC collegiate dining experience. Lili Wok is ideal for ordering in on those frigid nights when it’s just too cold to warrant walking anywhere else. When you have stayed out so late, it becomes folly to return home without some sort of nourishment, and many PC students turn to Admiral Spa for sustenance in those wee morning hours. But, at 2 a.m., nothing is more appetizing than a slice of Golden Crust with bleu cheese. (Warning: Do not eat sober!) The ritual parents’ weekend would not be complete without an outing to Federal Hill, especially when you know the 'rents are paying. While everyone maintains a personal favorite suitable to their palette, all appreciate the innumerable choices available.
The closest thing to a NY slice of pizza is Antonio’s on Thayer Street, but unfortunately, they do not deliver. However, many eateries do deliver, including Sicilia’s on Federal Hill, but a drawback to delivery is that in the snow it can take up to two hours. Some places, such as Mai Tai, accept credit cards for those running short on cash. Dining out and delivery are an excellent option when you’ve run out of Slavin money and Ray disappoints yet again. Offering a diverse selection of cuisine for all budgets, Providence restaurants subscribe to the old adage, "Variety is the spice of life."
