Dana Delany and Jeri Ryan — who play medical examiners on the new ABC drama Body of Proof — share with American Way their favorite places in Providence, R.I., where the Philadelphia-set show is shot.Mad Ernie’s Homemade Ice Cream and Café
485 Angell St.
“My daughter and I go here for quick lunches,” Ryan says. “I’m a pistachio girl, and Gisele generally gets whatever is purple that day — with sprinkles, of course.”
Rhode Island State House
82 Smith St.
“Definitely check out the old State House, designed by Stanford White,” Delany says. “It has the fourth-largest self-supported marble dome in the world.”
465 Angell St.
“This little bistro in Wayland Square is my go-to place,” Ryan says. “My daughter loves it too. They have a great coq au vin.”
Al Forno Restaurant
577 South Main St.
“Al Forno is still the gold standard in a city filled with great restaurants,” Delany says. “But any Italian spot on Federal Hill will be worthwhile.”
