Rhode Island restaurants - entrees, apps and other choices?

Last nite, we went to a new restaurant to us. It was very good, but I got the wrong entree.....mine was just OK but the others looked great.

This started a dialog about great menu items in our area, so I thought I would start a list of our favs. Please add yours in as well as I am curious and hoping to find some new ideas.

here's our list:

Sicilian Clams app - Scales & Shells

Mesquite grilled toro tuna - Scales & Shells

Mesquite grilled swordfish- Scales & Shells

Fried whole yellowtail flouder- Scales & Shells

Fried calamari- Mike's Kitchen

Chicken in wine- Mike's Kitchen

Grilled Lamb chops- Twin Oaks

Bag of Donuts- Moorings

Any steak - 22 Bowen

Albondingas soup- Brick Alley Pub

Salad Bar- Brick Alley Pub

fried clams - Duffy's Tavern

Prosciutto wrapped mozzarella - Trattoria Romana South

OK.......that's a good start and it's making me hungry!!

Crazy Burger has very good calamari and the breading they use is gluten-free. Also love Crazy Burger's vegan carrot cake. Spain in Narragansett has gazpacho that I love.

For Spain it's filet mignon. Bouchards for scallops... or anything French or romantic. For Twin Oaks it's calamari for the app and veal parm for the entree. Flo's for clam cakes and chowder. At Crazy Burger I am hooked on the Freaky Fajita Burger. Oh darn, now I'm really hungry. Oh, and Turtle Soup's Spanky Pie is the best small bite around.

Lauryc, my fav at Crazy Burger is also the Freaky Fajita Burger! To bring Westerly into the mix, the salmon at Bridge is fantastic, and the freshly made pasta and pizza at Casa Della Luce is wonderful. I also love any one of the grilled cheese offerings at the new Twisted Vine.

I just tried Bridge 2 days ago! We went for lunch and I LOVED the chicken and bean burrito. We'll definitely go back.
