Fox Point’s beloved pizza joint, Fellini Pizzeria, just opened a second location in Pawtuxet Village, Cranston. Those on the other side of the bay no longer need to venture to Prov for their French pancake fix — Crepelicious has arrived in Barrington serving up decedent crepe-themed desserts. A new cafe just opened on Federal Hill — Enoteca Umberto, meaning “wine library,” and is delivering on its claim with a wide selection of vinos in a small, classic, Italian-style bistro. Federal Hill is also seeing the opening of a casual, authentic Mexican cocina with Letty’s. New Bedford also has two openings this month. Ming Sushi, one of NB’s few sushi joints, is BYOB with an “All you can eat” special: bottomless menu items for a fixed price. Sold. NB’s waterfront is welcoming the appropriately named The Black Whale, boasting high-end cocktails and seafood. Barrett’s Alehouse opened in North Attleborough, serving up casual bar fare. Crosby’s Cafe, formerly Village Cafe, is East Greenwich’s latest addition, located off Main St. Tapas bars have been on the rise in RI since the spring. Another opened, this time in North Smithfield. Spark Grill and Tapas Bar offers small American fare plates, and now, a weekend comedy show. Only one opening in Newport this month. Parlor Bar and Kitchen is bringing the high-end menu we expect from Npt with a modern, comfortable atmosphere.
The Cheese Plate in Warren has closed, potentially temporarily. It is rumored that it will re-open after changing ownership. This will be the fourth time it’s changed hands since its open last spring.
