Located in the former Rumford Baking Powder factory, it offers an ever changing menu attentive and friendly service, It was a bit odd to sit outside adjacent to the building parking lot which was hardly scenic or enjoyable but it was shady.

Excellent food and atmosphere! The many items available are all wonderful, bought and delivered from local producers - you can taste the freshness. My fave is the chicken with puréed celeriac and Amish corn. But the short ribs are amazing, too!

Avenue N is the quintessential Rhode Island restaurant. It is located in an old mill, where Rumford Baking Powder was once manufactured. It's located in the Rumford neighborhood of East Providence, and it's a real neighborhood gathering spot, especially with Seven Stars Bakery next door. I’ve been to Avenue N for brunch and dinner and never been disappointed. They feature... More

Excellent quality food and service. Only drawback is the seating arrangement. There is a nice bar. But dining is banquette style, for the most part. Not a deal breaker, as it is window rich and has tall ceilings. Allowing this relatively small space to feel much larger. Owner and chef operated, this is a must try, and try again. I... More

Great food, cocktails and service in a friendly, casual, neighborhood chef/owner run restaurant extremely popular with Rumford and East Side restaurant cognoscenti.

The meals are prepared for you when ordered. The freshest vegetables are used and the service is great. The space is limited but the for makes up for that. There is a bar that you can sit at also. It owner is there and if you have special requests they are usually met. Fantastic place.

We had reservations and were seated right away, good thing too since the place was packed within the hour. We split the fried oyster appetizer, the waitress offered to give us 6 instead of the usual 5 to make sharing easier. They were lightly battered (almost like an onion ring batter) with a sauce, tasty with a good presentation. My... More

I have been looking forward to eating here for quite a while, based on rave reviews from my spouse and friends. Ordered the dish my husband always gets; he goes there as it is close to work, and when the plate arrived I knew this was not what I expected. Some tasty lentils, a little swiss chard and a short...
