Zagat—known as the ‘burgundy bible’—is launching its first-ever Providence Shopping, Nightlife and Restaurant survey—and we want you to participate! Zagat surveys produce comprehensive, reliable and up-to-date guides for cities around the world, and they’re now available in book form, on, and on mobile applications. We’re excited that downtown Providence’s best venues are going to get some much-deserved attention!

Let the world know the best places in our neighborhood to grab a beer, sip a latte, or impress a date. Simply enter your email, review the downtown place that you’ve visited, and rank your favorites. You’ll be rewarded with a free guidebook! Voting ends on February 23rd, so get busy shopping, dining, and reviewing!
