McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant is located in the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Providence, where co-owner Bill McCormick once parked cars as a young boy. We were looking for a seafood restaurant and left our car in another part of town, so when we turned the corner on Dorrance, we decided to just eat here.Spontaneity isn't so bad. The menu at McCormick & Schmick's Seafood Restaurant features more than 30 varieties of fish and seafood from around the world. While we nursed Hoegaardens, we split the corn chowder soup and the baby arugula salad with goat cheese. We also ordered a big pot of mussels and half a dozen oysters.The space reminds me of a huge steakhouse, carpet and gold trimings included. Sometimes, though, one can ignore the ambience and just enjoy the food.
