Kait Barnett, the original foodie behind Providence Eats, first moved to Providence in 2013 from Westchester County, New York. It didn’t take long before she realized just how good Rhode Islanders had it when it came to dining out. The diverse selection of cuisines in a small region was impressive, and she was determined to enlighten her taste buds every chance she got. After a few months of wining and dining, Kait decided she should document her foodie findings so that others could skip the “ehhs” and head straight for the “ahhs”. And so became Providence Eats.
Providence Eats first hit the food scene in February of 2016 quickly gaining popularity among the Rhody community. Due to daily posts of various foods and drinks, the account grew and became a “token of approval” for its followers when it came to deciding on which Rhode Island restaurants, coffee shops, bars, etc. to visit. Although Providence Eats loves and supports all R.I. foodie accounts, it is distinguished by its genuine desire to provide the people and tourists of our great state with the best and most unique dining and drinking options. That being said—Providence Eats will never post a meal that was not thoroughly enjoyed (and devoured).
Due to the growing popularity of Providence Eats—and of Rhode Island’s nationally recognized food scene—Kait asked her good friend and fellow foodie Tori Vichroski, a Rhode Island native, to join her on her journey to taste each plate across the state. Together, these two twenty-somethings are working to transform the way Rhode Islanders (and those visiting Rhode Island) experience the state’s amazing cuisines.
