Is this restaurant description familiar to anyone?
Shortly after moving to Providence a few years ago, I thought I remembered reading about a restaurant or an inn or a B&B somewhere in SE New England (be it in the East Bay, RI area or SE Mass, out to the Cape, or maybe even Eastern CT) where they had a special room with a table that was on the the very top of the building with great views of a surrounding countryside or even the water/bay. I think it was profiled in a New Year's special of "most romantic" dinner options for the holiday a few years back...
Is this description familiar to anyone? Does anyone know of this mystery restaurant or Inn?
It's probably not the one you're thinking of, but the Spring House Hotel on Block Island has a cupola where, once upon a time at least, they would do a prix fixe dinner for two complete with embossed champagne flutes the couple could take home. When my brother and I were servers there, we got the deal for our parents for their anniversary. The view is of all of the island and much of the Atlantic. It's definitely worth looking in to.
It's the range light in Newburyport. Here the website and here's what they say. I think it was on Chronicle on Channel 5 in Boston.
'Newburyport's Range Light on Water Street offers the unique experience of a private dinner at the top of the lighthouse."
There is a lighthouse in Newburyport that was featured on (I think) Phantom Gourmet. You cant rent this per night and the waiter will deliver from any number of surrounding restaurants. Only one couple or table per evening. Don't remember the name.
