We went to TSK this summer for the first time, and felt like we had been missing out all this time. There is only one thing to talk about and that's the food. It is simply delicious, my wife had the chicken and she couldn't stop raving about it. One thing though it is BYOB so make sure to bring... More

Perfect. Four appetizer choices and four dinner choices. Every ingredient is fresh and the kitchen excels.

Words cannot describe our experience. Thames Street Kitchen is a low-key, discrete restaurant that focuses on fine food, excellent service and simple decor. We had the rabbit pave, lamb belly, flounder and scallops. All very, very delicious!!!

We didn't know what to expect. It's a small, neighborhood-like restaurant run by a family. They purposely don't have a liquor license. Were we surprised! It's now one of our two favorite restaurants in Newport. Yes, they have a small menu, but it's innovative and perfectly executed. For what you get, it's quite inexpensive. The food warrants accompaniment with great... More

In a posh resort area like Newport, it's nice to have a BYOB, quiet, straightforward gustatory respite. Though the neighborhood is a bit iffy, it's conveniently located next to a liquor store for patrons to buy some libations if they forgot TSK is BYOB. The menu is small, but the quality is abundant. One negative--there are several high top tables,... More

TSK is by far our favorite restaurant in Newport. It is our number one pick when family and guests visit. We've been several times now with several different parties over the last few months, and everyone walks away raving over the food. The menu changes constantly, always unique and delicious. The atmosphere suits us perfectly, nice, simple, and comfortable, definitely... More

This place gave me one of the best meals of my life, hands down. We went here with a group of 8 and no one was disappointed. My sister's steak was incredible. I had a seafood dish and it was also excellent. The prices are a BIT pricey, but the food is so good it's worth it. Plus this place... More

While the place is small, and simply adorned, the food is seasonal, local and thoughtfully detailed. Fresh bread served in a paper bag sums up the experience. The focus is clearly about the food, not the flatware. The only real view, or adornment in the place, is the framed view of the active kitchen. Makes sense. We started with the... More

This is probably one of the more creative restaurants available, and the history of two couples opening it, plus the sustainability and BYOB, make it really special. The two of us were visiting Newport and wanted a special goodbye dinner. The TSK did not disappoint. From the special appetizers to the main courses, we loved everything. Celery soup, Confit Pumpkin,... More

An intimate dinner spot with great food. Everything was intensely flavored and beautifully presented. BYOB was nice touch. Beef Carpaccio was outstanding.
