Restaurant Review

Adam and I tried the new restaurant in Cranston last night - N'Joi. We had one of the Wicked Deal half price gift certificates to use for there and decided after our exhibit opening at the culinary musem that would be a fun place to go.

39 Phenix Ave in Cranston, RI.

WOW - had we not had the certificate we probably never would have tried it and I think we'll be back.

Great atmosphere inside, quaint, trendy, nice staff, you would never know you were in a strip mall restaurant.

The menu is small but has a nice variety and very unique dishes.

Everything is made to order and is made with a ton of TLC and thought to presentation, flavors, and textures.

The bread is fantastic, as is the roasted tomato oil to dip it in.

Try the Yellow Tail Fish Meatballs for an appetizer, you won't be disappointed.

Adam had the roasted duck breast which looked fantastic.
I had the sirloin steak with these awesome potato munchkins.

Prices are on the higher side - mine was $25, his was $27 - but you could easily go more affordable with a small plate item and a salad.

And when you leave you get a little take home mini cake to go - so cute!

We hope it makes it, there were not too many people in there last night - us and one other table. It really had some unique offerings and we were quite pleased - what a find!

We give it 3 out of 4 Stars
