England travel article with your friends...
Tate's Italian Kitchen has come to the dining scene rescue in
Wickford Village, Rhode Island, on so many levels.
Those who love the authentic Federal Hill Italian restaurants in
Providence and the North End of Boston -- but not in the mood for
traffic and lack of parking -- will find Tate's ideal as it is located
in quiet Wickford Village. Anyone who feels like scenic, charming
Wickford Village -- with its mix of coastal views and high
concentration of colonial homes -- could offer more dining options
should be delighted that Tate's brings the only authentic Italian
cuisine to the neighborhood. Additionally, Rhode Island travelers
should take note of Tate's: If vacationing in Newport, I wouldn't
hesitate to take the short ride (everything in Rhode Island is a short
ride) to escape the tourist crowds, en route to a nice quiet meal at
one of southern New England's most beautiful communities -- and then to
take a stroll after the dining experience in a truly wonderful walking
Once the location for the Wickford Diner, Tate's Italian Kitchen
has transformed this small dining space into a quaint, relaxing
restaurant that stays away from the typical Italian-American fare and
focuses on homemade dishes and a wine list that you would typically
find in the big cities. Some examples: meatballs with whipped
ricotta; gemelli with shitake mushrooms, peas, prosciutto and truffle
butter; short rib ravioli accented with natural jus and taellegio
crema; lasagna bolognese; pork chop with fig, fennel and agrodolce; and
butternut squash lasagnette with maple, cider glaze and amoretti. For
the record, Tate's does feature traditional favorites like chicken
eggplants and veal parms, but they have more to do with the kind that
would come out of a Italian grandma's kitchen rather than the mass
produced or improperly combined or overcooked versions you'd find at
some other restaurants.
From Miller Lite to a suave and sophisticated bottle of Banfi Castello
Summus or a "Wickford" cocktail with Maker's Mark, lime juice and sweet
vermouth, the adult beverages drink list is quite impressive, too.
Service is attentive and knowledgeable and although there is a
refinement to the overall dining experience, the dining room exudes a
comfortable, informal vibe -- almost like being in an Italian
relative's dining room.
While every dining spot in Wickford Village offers very
within its own food genres, Tate's really stands out with its
innovation, creativity use of fresh local ingredients, and what seems
like a detailed commitment to making sure all the flavors of a true
Italian meal come to the forefront. Additionally, although Tate's could
be a great date night out type of place, it is also family-friendly.
Nice to have a genuine Italian kitchen in the neighborhood that locals
and visitors have come to love as Wickford Village!
