Keeping It Casual: Junk food, meet fine wine

Not every night calls for a petit filet topped with foie gras. Sometimes you just need a simple food fix — a few slices of thin crust or a big, beefy Five Guys.

DIY Education

In light of recent budget cuts in average Americans' bank accounts, and the increasingly skyrocketing cost of higher education, Phoenix University (we regret the acronym, but University of Phoenix was taken) has opened its (paper) doors.

Review: The Abbey(1)

The Abbey may resemble just another corner grub pub, but I'm here to declare that this Elmhurst mainstay (near the Providence College campus) is home to the best cheeseburger in Providence.

Where to go with what's in your pocket (or couch, or car)

After about two weeks of being back in school and eating every meal — day after day after day — in the cafeteria, it's going to start sucking. It's actually written in the student handbook.

Review: Think Tank Bistrotheque

The owners have some very good ideas about food and drink — Southeast Asian treats are cool, and craft cocktails go better with them than wine does — but they have also produced some decisions that make the rest of us scratch our heads.

Review: East Ender

Those French know how to cook. But here in America, French cuisine too often comes with a demi-glace of pedantry and a side of self-congratulation.

Review: Doherty's East Avenue Irish Pub

Doherty's East Ave Irish Pub is an old-fashioned gem: an informal eatery where you can chow down on wonderful food over a brew or a few: there are 157 on tap and in bottles, at last count.

Review: Local 121

Local 121 isn't a locabore about their commitment to "locally harvested food and drink." The restaurant just places a list of some of their "local resources" at the bottom of their menu: Matunuck Oyster Farm, Prima Pasta, Sakonnet Vineyards, and so on.

Review: Billy's

Prominent in Billy's is the sort of plaque and menu notation you expect to see in a tavern that has "Ye Olde" in front of its name, only this one declares "Est. 2009." Optimistic. In a business that has the mortality rate of migrating salmon, it's appro

Tasty Burger

In the 1994 classic Pulp Fiction, Samuel L. Jackson called hamburgers "the cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast."

Savor the local flavor

In some college towns, you're lucky if you can find two or three good eateries. In Providence, you could get through med school and still not be done exploring — especially if you're willing to venture deep into the city and out across Rhode Island.

Review: Thornton's Grille

Restaurants are notoriously difficult businesses to start up, with survival rates not unlike those of small countries with larger, hostile neighbors. But some people know how to put them together so they'll stick around awhile.

Lee's Place Burgers

Americans eat more than a billion hamburgers each year, most of them at fast-food restaurants. That's a lot of bad, sad burgers.

Bull McCabe's

I asked a friend who lives in Union Square, Somerville, if he'd checked out the nearby Bull McCabe's. "No, I'm still in mourning for Tír na nÓg [its predecessor]."

The Regal Beagle

The Regal Beagle is making a quick success doing what almost all the new restaurants want to do: small plates; comfort food with a gourmet twist; a mixture of high and low; a bit of locovore, green, and slow fare; some salty fast food; interesting drinks
