Opened and Closed


Five Guys: 63 Airport Rd, Warwick. This greasy (tremendously unhealthy) burger chain opened a new location on Airport Road in Warwick, with a mobile pick up window that already has car lines going out into the street. 

Pizza Marvin: 468 Wickenden St, PVD. This new pizzeria over in Fox Point boosts “New Haven-style inspired” pies, whatever that means.


Foodlove Market: 1037 Aquidneck Ave, Middletown. Opening this summer, they sell pre-made to-go meals made with local ingredients, from pizza to rotisserie chicken to groceries, sushi, poke bowls and more.

Air and Anchor: An online jewelry and accessory shop started by a couple in Cranston. 

Zurner Oceanic: 40 Franklin St, Newport. Opened during the pandemic, this nautical-themed shop sells … well, oceanic-themed goods. 

Charter Books: 8 Broadway, Newport. Taking its name from the 1663 doc that founded our state, this new bookstore aims to push more than just pulp, airport thrillers. 

Graze on Main: 58 Main St, East Greenwich. Across the street from the Greenwich Odeum (and hidden in the back) this biz curates cured meat and cheeses in specialty charcuterie platters.

Rejects Beer Company: 124 Aquidneck Ave, Middletown. The newest brewer in the East Bay. See story page XX.

Times Are Tough Gallery: Located literally in the breezeway of someone’s Middletown home, this gallery store sells prints, cards, jewelry. And can we get a big ol’ “No shit!” about the name? Visit to arrange a visit.

Eli’s Kitchen in Warren: This Warren restaurant, run by chef Eli Dunn, closed at the end of 2020. Dunn announced he and a couple of his partner chefs would open a new space at a new location sometime in 2021.
