Spiced Pear or Castle Hill?
My husband and I will be celebrating my birthday in Newport on January 2nd. I think I would like to eat at either The Spiced Pear or at Castle Hill Inn. I can't drink right now, so food is the big draw for me.
Any suggestions on which you prefer, or other places that I might want to consider?
I am a big fan of Castle Hill. Some of my best meals in RI have been there. The service is polished and the atmosphere very mellow and quiet, which I appreciate (hate restaurants where you must shout over the din). Food wise, I appreciate that they use local vendors and everything seems fresh. I was pregnant last time I went (perhaps why you can't drink?) and they were very thoughtful about pregnant lady concerns (raw cheeses, cooking meat beyond bloody) and even made me a fancy non-alcoholic drink, so I could at least look the part.
