Restaurant Reviews

Thames Street Kitchen

A humble Newport restaurant is quietly attracting a following the old-fashioned way — with its food.

The Grill at Forty 1° North

A room with a view: At Forty 1 North guests gear up to see and be seen — and spend big. Welcome to a new brand of luxury dining.

Bridge

Bridge’s span is broad: killer views, a deep drink list and a menu with everyman appeal. The weather’s finally warm. Will the crowds trek to Westerly?

Christie’s

Definitely not your grandfather’s fish house, the new Christie’s flaunts Asian flavors and is a decidedly hip hangout.

Centro Restaurant and Lounge

At the Westin, it’s out with Agora and in with Centro. But will upscale Italian woo diners Downcity?

Cafe Nuovo

Big, bold excess — culinary and aesthetic —  is still the secret to Cafe Nuovo’s success.

Perro Salado

Mad for mole? A modern take on Mexican has a cult following in Newport.

Cook & Brown Public House

Now that Cook & Brown has strayed successfully from its British beginnings, a neighborhood hot spot is born.

Seasons at the Ocean House

The new super-luxe Ocean House has set the bar incredibly high for its signature restaurant. Can the farm-to-table fare outshine the stellar surroundings?

Tallulah on Thames

Tallulah may be on Thames, but it’s not your typical tourist trap. Can a new-to-town chef armed with an avant garde menu stir up Newport’s dining scene?
