Welcome to Home Is A Kitchen’s List of the Best Restaurants in Rhode Island sorted alphabetically by cuisine type. It’s a given that I haven’t visited every restaurant in Rhode Island, however, I still maintain that this list is a great place to start for ideas or recommendations. There are, of course, many restaurants in Rhode Island worth visiting beyond those mentioned here and it’s important to remember that good food is often a preference. Periodically, I’ll refine this list as time goes on so that it reflects my thoughts on the best of the best.
