There have been many locally elected officials (mayors, council members, state legislators) of Portuguese origin in both Ma and RI. There are not as many that won statewide or federal offices. RI has had a few - Paul Tavares, former General Treasurer of RI/current RI Senate President is Teresa Paiva-Weed.

This is one of my favorite restaurants back in New England in the fishing/maritime enclave of Gloucester Mass. Their menu might give a good idea of what Portuguese and non-Portuguese locals like to eat.....

Azorean Restaurant and Bar
