My birthday is a week away. My list has stalled due to health issues, but I will keep at it. I’m almost halfway done.

I attended a conference in Providence a couple of months ago and tried a slew of new restaurants…

Caserta Pizzeria: made-to-order pizza with black olives (my favorite)

The Malted Barley: specializes in beer and soft pretzels. I had a BLT on a pretzel.

Geoff’s Superlative Sandwiches: there were easily 25 different sandwiches to choose from. I had chicken salad with cranberry.

Last, but not least, Knead: donuts. I took home a pomegranate fritter and chocolate coffee donut.

I recommend all of these places; they did not disappoint!
