Restaurant Reviews

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?

Matunuck Oyster Bar

Oysterman Perry Raso’s new venture brings the pond to plate movement (quite literally) to Matunuck. And the view’s not half bad either.

Temple

Known more for its cocktails than its cuisine, Temple is betting big that a new Mediterranean menu will draw destination diners.
