Locals gladly line up for upscale-casual breakfasts and brunches at Nicks on Broadway from Chef Derek Wagner, twice a nominee for the James Beard Foundation's Rising Star Award. With a nod toward locally sourced ingredients, the breakfast menu consists of breakfast sandwiches, vanilla-battered brioche French toast, a frittata with local vegetables and fresh mozzarella, and house-baked granola with yogurt.
From the restaurant's website:
"Nicks on Broadway is a contemporary
American restaurant located in the West End of Providence. Nicks
specializes in seasonally inspired, locally focused food, put forth
humbly with thoughtfulness, passion and honesty."
"The look is uptown sleek, and the crowd packs in. ... Seating is
tight, and the noise level is loud, but local foodies flock here, having
followed owner/chef Derek Wagner from his previous and even smaller
location several blocks closer to downtown."
