Fodor's Review

In a city where culinary newcomers tend to garner all the attention, Hemenway's continues to be one of the best seafood restaurants. The menu includes New England staples like a perfectly cracked baked stuffed lobster with lump crab and scallop stuffing, fried whole-belly clams, and George's Bank sea scallops baked, fried, or grilled. The inspired chef's specialties include figs with goat cheese wrapped in bacon, and Portuguese-style littleneck clams with chouriço (spicy Portuguese sausage), tomatoes, and scallions. The wine list is extensive, and craft beer lovers will find a wealth of choices. The high-ceiling dining room's huge windows look out on Providence's World War II Memorial. In warm weather, dine outside on the front patio.
