While the term “New American” means everything and nothing these days, the chef from Persimmon has been a real pioneer in the local farm-to-table movement. And this restaurant still feels under the radar, even though everybody in Providence and their parents have been coming here since they opened in 2016.

The menu changes daily (you won’t find a concrete answer to “what’s for dinner?” on their website), but we’ve recently loved the cornichon-studded beef tartare and the subtle spins on classics, like lamb wellington or the local asparagus with hollandaise (unassuming, but a banger). And with a bright but cozy interior, it’s a perfect and intimate option whether you’re trying to impress your date or your parents.
