Crime and Cuisine on Federal Hill
A Food Tour with a Felonious Twist
The Federal Hill neighborhood of Providence is one of its hottest destinations, home to some of the best Italian food in the world. This tour will give you a smorgasbord of its best bites and drinks, from fine wines to housemade pasta. Come hungry!
Every guest will also get a memento from their time on the Hill to take home with them. Spoiler alert: it's delicious!
The Hill was also home to some historic characters who dabbled on the wrong side of the law. Follow the intrigue of State v. Patriarca, when a future mayor took on a mob boss; learn about the corruption which brought Rhode Island's banking system to its knees in the '90s, and about a raid on an illegal dice game that sent a Providence Police Officer through a second-story window.
"The Crime and Cuisine Tour teased our appetite for Federal Hill’s riveting history, which is inexplicably bound in food and wine."

"Your biggest problem in Providence might be narrowing down the sheer number of places where you want to eat."
