Saturday Date

Jimmy and I realized after beach season was really over, that we still had to be 'running somewhere' on the weekend. So, living in the small and historic state of Rhode Island, we have been making the most of it. We decided that each Saturday we would visit a town, city or village, and find the best place for soup...yes, that's right soup. We're talking lobster bisque and New England clam chowder. Although, we did find some amazing sweet potato bisque at 'Z Bar and Grille' in Providence. We're geared up to find the best of the best. It's a great date! We've been to about 6 different restaurants since October. Today, we stayed in Providence, where eateries are plenteous. We have been eying 'Cav' for a long time, we have poured over the menu, discussed our options, brunch, lunch or dinner. The time was right. We had no idea that the ambiance would be so interesting. They have art objects from around the world, all for sale from the finest rugs, to African sculptures and Asian bronze pieces. All with a festive, holiday touch too boot. Jimmy had a big bowl of clam chowder, with fresh clams, visible to the eye, and I had a cup of lobster bisque. It had a smokey taste, with a little heat..interesting. So, we'll keep you posted as we eat our way from one end of the state to the other!!
