Restaurants recs in Newport, RI?
Hi Chowhounds! My fiance and I are spending the weekend in Newport, RI and would love some restaurant recommendations. We love just about all types of food (maybe not seafood this time around since we split a "treasure chest" a few hours ago, which consisted of about 5 pounds of various fried seafood items) but are on grad student budgets. We're willing to splurge a little, but nothing too crazy. Thanks for the help!
you can check these places on line.
For romantic The Inn at Castle Hill ( a bit expensive but worth the trip)
TSK on Thames St you need reservations
Clarke Cook House
Restaurant Bouchard excellent French Cuisine
Although it's a lovely setting, you'll want to avoid Castle Hill if you are on a budget. And also if you are avoiding seafood. We had lunch there recently and their tenderloin sandwich was positively awful with small bits of overcooked grisled meat in a huge chewy bun. My pan seared fluke was lovely on the other hand. Two lunches with apps and wine was $120 plus tip.
