nick’s on broadway chef Derek Wagner expands his business to Westminster Street


When Providence dwellers think about elegant brunch, or really brunch in general, nick’s on broadway immediately comes to mind. Once you’ve been there for a meal, you don’t forget the artfully plated, colorful food that dazzles your palate. You also don’t forget that you woke up uncharacteristically early on a Sunday morning just to be able to get a seat at nick’s before the crowd arrives. Hopefully, the wait will be a bit shorter because owner and chef Derek Wagner is opening nick’s on westminster this month.

Derek’s newest endeavor is a continuation of the “community-supported, high-quality” mission first started at the restaurant on Broadway. Located at 100 Westminster Street in the heart of the Providence Financial District, the new eatery will still strive to provide “fresh, local, delicious food to everyone who stops in.” What will be different at this location however, is the introduction of quick-service and cafe options available on the menu.

Derek has stated that he chose the cobblestoned spot on Westminster because he felt it was a way to bring his signature creations to the heart of the city he loves. “I have so much pride in Providence and I knew that when the time came to open a second location, it would be right here. This is a community that I love and that has supported me, and I am excited to capture the energy of nicks on broadway and bring it to a new audience.” The nature of the bustling financial district also gave Derek the opportunity to experiment with to-go options and meet people’s needs for efficiency.

Nick’s on westminster is poised to open this month serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as quick-service lunch, brunch, and to-go options Monday through Friday. 100 Westminster Street
