Crime & Cuisine Tour of Federal Hill

A food tour with a felonious twist!

June 6, 2024


Join PRIME TIME™ on Thursday, June 6th as we head to Providence, RI for a tasting tour through one of America’s top Italian neighborhoods. During the Crime & Cuisine Tour of Federal Hill, not only will you sample some delicious foods, you will also uncover some of Providence’s true crime history.

The Federal Hill neighborhood of Providence is one of the city’s most trendy destinations and home to some of the best Italian food in the world. This tour will give you a smorgasbord of its best bites and drinks, from fine Italian wine to delicious homemade pasta. Come hungry!

The Hill was also home to some historic characters who dabbled on the wrong side of the law. We’ll follow the intrigue of State v. Patriarca, when a future mayor took on a mob boss; learn about the corruption that brought Rhode Island's banking system to its knees in the '90s; plus discover a raid on an illegal dice game that sent a Providence Police Officer through a second-story window.

Experience a taste of Providence’s Italian neighborhood alongside learning about historical characters who didn’t always play by the rules!
