We heard many good things about the food at TSK. We were not disappointed. I had the skirt steak with fingerling potatoes and sunflower pesto(the only way I can describe it),and my husband had the chicken with lemon confit. Both were delicious. The chicken took a bit to cook, but the bread they served while we waited was perfect. The... More

I had dinner here last night and was absolutely pleased. The beef tar tar was delicious and the duck rillette with crustini and pickled rhubarb melted in your mouth. I elected for the fried chicken which was great and I was able to try the steak which was Cooked to perfection. The dishes where modern in plating and creativity yet... More

Great place to have a nice and cozy dinner. The food is excelent, asked for the lobster, the fluke and the tuna crudo. The staff is really nice and they can explain everything in detail. They are part of the BYOB movement and it was a great experience, we had a nice white wine that went along perfectly with the... More

TSK is for "foodies" - locavores who appreciate ingenuity and small miracles. It's a little pricey but every detail about the food is well executed. Other reviews complained, but we love the cheese plate - it is for TASTING novel flavor combinations, not for gorging on cheese and crackers. The fried chicken is so good it is now on the... More

Although TSK is somewhat out of the way from downtown Newport, it is well worth the trip to sample the unique local food combinations. We started our dinner with hot homemade bread and a cheese plate accompanied by honeycomb and a unique fruit jelly. Our entrée was an excellently prepared rib eye steak fillet accompanied by broccoli rabe and a... More

Eat here! My Fiancé and I met a women in the Mariott pool who recommended this place. Had the foie gras, sea bass, fired chicken, and scallop dishes. Every bite was an experience. I can say I walked out feeling like it was a unique and completely satisfying 2 hours of my life. BYOB is great so you can indulge... More

I dined here last weekend with my parents, sister and husband. I knew I wanted to do a farm-to-table dinner one night, and saw on their website that they took reservations up to one month in advance. Not wanting to risk missing out, I made our reservation exactly one month to the day before our dinner. There are about ten... More

The chefs continually create sophisticated delicious meals for the fortunate clientele in the know. Many praise other restaurants on this site which never compare. While a casual setting, the food surpasses the decor. I travel to this resort city often and treasure my opportunities to return to TSK.

Don't let the smaller portions keep you away, the food is excellent. On a recent trip I ordered veal cheeks, and they were tender and very delicious. I would have liked to have more on my plate, however, so I'd recommend ordering a side to go with your meal. Another in our party ordered the fried chicken, which she said... More

This place is something to talk about and if you can get lucky with a table i would take it! this place is definitely worth tying to get a seat at. With limited seating (probably 8-10 tables) .. it's always busy and booked up! we went for brunch because every time we tried to go for dinner they were always... More
