Practical A to Z

Eating out

Opnening hours

Remember that New Englanders traditionally go to bed early and that, with the exception of main cities, restaurants are closed after 9pm.

Where to eat

An institution in the United States, the diner was born in Providence (Rhode Island). Authentic diner cars are still commonplace in the region, serving breakfast, burgers, seafood, salads and traditional dishes.

The major cities of New England are home to all sorts of establishments. However you will often find the best food in country inns: tasty dishes, creative desserts and award-winning wines.
