The compact garden not only features kitchen staples like heirloom tomatoes, basil and pepper, but it also houses a variety of unique items including cow horn pepper, chocolate mint, peas, broccoli, and Thai basil.
The garden’s signature is a mysterious tall, railroad track-like metal structure that rises twenty feet above ground. Sources at the Rhode Island Historical society think that it was most likely part of the East Side Railroad tunnel, the entrance of which is behind the restaurant. What could it be?

Mill’s Tavern was included in a Yahoo! Travel article last month that depicted various Providence destinations and hot spots, all of which provide tourists, students and residents with the perfect Thursday night out.
We love that the article, written by Sydney Mondry, recommends visiting Mill’s Tavern for an “extra cozy atmosphere on cold New England nights.” Mondry also pays compliment to our oysters and cocktails.

Mill’s Tavern’s Chef Edward Bolus participated in the RI Signature Chef Auction 2014, hosted by the Rhode Island chapter of the March of Dimes. Chef Edward was among twenty of the state’s best chefs who were on-hand at the Providence Art Club to have their fine dining experiences auctioned off. Proceeds from the event benefited the nonprofit.
