Boston Restaurant Blog -- June, 2005

While the Boston's Hidden Restaurants site is full of great little-known dining spots, not every hidden restaurant in Boston and New England is going on the site. Some are, well, little-known for a reason, and others are good, but not worthy of a special trip. Then there are the restaurants that miss by a very small margin. One example of this type of dining spot is a place I went to recently in historic Pawtuxet, Rhode Island (a part of Cranston, just south of Providence) called L'Attitude Modern Eatery.
L'Attitude, located in the center of Pawtuxet near the water, is a fine restaurant with lots of decent choices on the menu and an atmosphere that is a mix of old-time Italian and townie tavern. The waitstaff there is friendly and efficient, and they have a friendly old dog who wanders around the place, looking longingly at all the plates of food.
While our entrees--pumpkin ravioli in a cream sauce and sauteed chicken were very good, they weren't quite up to the standards of our site. They were close, however, and we may head back there to try other entrees. If L'Attitude's food is just a bit better next time we go, it may end up being featured on Boston's Hidden Restaurants. But for now, it is one of several restaurants that, in the words of Maxwell Smart, missed by THAT much. Overall, though, I like L'Attitude and appreciate the good service and great atmosphere at this neat little Rhode Island restaurant.
If you are interested in the address for L'Attitude, here it is: L'Attitude Modern Eatery, 2190 Broad Street, Cranston, RI 02905; the phone number is (401) 780-8700.
