Providence Named Coolest City in U.S. by GQ

Tuesday, June 09, 2015

 

The city of Providence was named the coolest city in the United States by GQ on Tuesday.

The GQ article calls Providence an "intimidatingly smart city," and sites Brown University, Rhode Island School of Design and H.P. Lovecraft as reasons why.

GQ says that The Dean Hotel is the place to stay, noting that a King Suite there only costs $150 a night.

The Birch is the restaurant that GQ sites as the place to eat, adding that customers can get a four course meal for just $49 per person.

"The menu changes all the time, but if you're lucky, Chef Ben Sukle will be serving his Macomber turnip in a brown-butter broth with bits of dried crunchy shellfish," GQ said of The Birch.

Nick's on Broadway and The Grange are also recognized as great places to eat in Providence by GQ.

Lastly, GQ names White Electric Coffee as the best place in town for caffeine.
