Welcome to Home Is A Kitchen’s List of the Best Restaurants in Rhode Island sorted 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.
Agree or disagree with me? Have a recommendation for a restaurant I should try or consider mentioning as one of the best? Leave a comment below!

This is such a great list! I love the breakdown by cuisine too. I’ve seen a lot of RI lists, but usually it’s just like a to 10 or something. I’m going to gve this to my friends who visit from out of town whenever they ask for recomendations. Thanks again for putting this together. Have you thought about adding a southern food cuisine?
Thanks, Stephanie! Glad you enjoyed the list. I’ll be adding cuisines as I try more restaurants that are worth mentioning in each category. Funny you should mention Southern Cuisine because I’ve actually got a couple of places on my list to try. I’ll add them soon!
