Lanie was a natural as a guide, while we ate our way through Providence, Rhode Island. She clearly has good rapport with the restaurants we frequented and easily established relationships within our group of foodies, who began to feel like kinfolk by the end of the tour. We especially appreciated the decision to visit Kin, a black-owned southern food gem. The Providence food scene does not disappoint.
