Beau Vestal

New Rivers, Providence, RI

Elizabeth Vestal

New Rivers, Providence, RI

New Rivers has been a home away from home for Providence gastronomes for 30 years, even more so since Beau and Elizabeth Vestal took over the kitchen in 2012. Beau’s creative American fare found on the tables of this family-owned bistro perfectly complements his wife and partner Elizabeth’s warm front of house hospitality.
