One of our favorite Newport restaurants. Why? Charming location and decor, but more importantly the food and interesting margaritas. Short ribs are delicious and we've never been disappointed in a nightly special. The jalapeño and blood orange margaritas are worth the trip alone. Don't miss...More

We were lucky to have our Innkeeper make us a reservation. Even in January, it was packed. The food is so creative and delicious. The cucumber margarita is fabulous. We sat in a small room in the back with a bar. It was crowded and...More

Perro salado is my new favorite funky little eclectic hangout in Newport. In addition to its great vibe that reminds me a bit of some of the outstanding hole-in-a-wall eateries in the Crescent City, they've got the best gumbo I've had north of N'awlins! The...More
