7 One-Of-A-Kind Eateries In Rhode Island And Massachusetts

We came. We Saw. We Ate. Perhaps the best part of any road trip is the food you eat along the way. We hit several fun restaurants on our MINI NOT NORMAL Road Trip. Here's an inside look at some of our favorites.

2. The Beef Barn

The Beef Barn in North Smithfield, RI offers an extremely unique dining experience. Their small kitchen sits in the middle of the restaurant with its old-fashioned menu overhead. Grab a seat in the silo, the chicken coop, or pull up a stool to the bar.

3. White Horse Tavern

White Horse Tavern has been serving fresh farm-to-table food since 1673, making it the oldest continually operating tavern in the country. The White Horse was a regular haunt for Colonists, British soldiers, and early Americans.

Why the name? In 1673, not everyone had the fortune of learning how to read, so different establishments were identified by symbols — and taverns were marked with white horses.

5. Clam Box

The long line at the Clam Box in Ipswich, MA is well worth the wait. This landmark seafood joint has been frying up fresh clams and scallops for families north of Boston for over 60 years.

6. Flour Bakery

With four locations around the greater Boston area, Flour Bakery is a must the next time you’re in town. The Breads, pastries, soups, salads, and sandwiches are all made fresh in-house daily.
