    1. Newport is desperately lacking for brunch unfortunately but check out Corner Café and the Speakeasy, which is very new. Are you going this weekend? If so the Mooring is offering Easter brunch in addition to their lunch menu

      Perro Salado - Funky, nouveau Mexican/ American
      The Mooring - seafood, fresh, "classic Newport"
      Tallulah on Thames - locovore, super creative
      Bouchard - French
      22 Bowens - steak and seafood
      Salvation Café - Creative American, funky
      Tucker's Bistro - umm bistro

      1. brunch ideas
        Rhumbline - nice atmosphere in old point neighborhood and menu has a mix of breakfast and lunch items
        Zelda's - cozy, upscale restaurant with a pretty broad brunch menu
        Fifth Element - new restaurant, haven't been for brunch yet but i know they have and i believe they have music too
        Asterick - French, no one goes here, but i don't know why. i went for brunch not too long ago and really enjoyed it

        Agree with other poster that Corner Cafe is great, although I would say that is more breakfast than brunch

        1. We don't tend to do brunch out that often, but last fall we had friends from South Africa passing through town who had time for just one meal. I was trying to come up with a quintessentially Newport experience for them, something a little fancier than my favorite breakfast spot in town (Handy Lunch . . . mmm, chorizo omlette), and we wound up at Clarke Cooke. It turned out to be the perfect place to bring out of town guests. The space is gorgeous, the piano was terrific, and the prix fixe menu bloody marys and mimosas made it all the more festive.
