Al Forno is the place where grilled pizza was born. Judging by the pizzas I tried there last week, it's still on its game. Pizza is served as an appetizer there. Our tip? Forgo a table and just sit at the bar, drinking beer or wine and eating the pizza.
The state of Rhode Island may be small but it doesn't lack for food activities. One distinctive characteristic is the state's abundance of farmers' markets. With more than 1,200 farms across the state, residents don't have to travel far to get seasonal produce. During winter, options are naturally more limited. But the marvelous Pawtucket Wintertime Farmers' Market becomes the focal point of locavorism from November to May.
