Yelp! Orientation Edition for the Hungry Frosh

giphy

With move in/orientation for freshmen rapidly approaching, Blog thought it was necessary to share some of our favorite places to eat. We continue Yelp: Bruno Edition, so that no frosh and their fams will go hungry. As all of you incoming freshmen will quickly learn, Providence has an abundance of amazing restaurants and cafes. After my experience of aimlessly wandering into a restaurant located in some mysterious back alley off Thayer, that I am convinced no longer exists, and chowing down on dry Caesar salads with my parents, I have written this post in hopes that it will save you from a similar fate. Here are some restaurants for all stages of your college orientation (quick sandwiches between carrying mini fridges to full out “goodbye, mom” dinners).
