New American Restaurant

“Julian's is a delicious staple of Providence and is known for their Sunday Funday brunches, great food/drinks, and an overall chill atmosphere. Julian's is also a great place to meet locals. The food is super yummy, but waiting to be seated on Sundays can be a while, so a drink or two might be in order in the meantime. ;)”
