Farmers originally moved here because the available space was major. The goal was feasibly simply to feed themselves and their hungry families. Eventually though, the residents worked to help sustain the prosperous economy of Rhode Island. The normal food of these initial men and women were thrifty and strange. Rhode Islanders generally used squid, flounder and lobster which was readily available before refrigeration.

At present, cuisine in Jamestown, Rhode Island is refreshingly daring. And the decors can be downright dignified at a few of the contemporary saloons.
