TSK is a very trendy foodie restaurant WAY down Thames Street past the normal tourist spots. We had 4 people and sampled a lot of the menu, overall everything was excellent. The menu itself is a little too sparse, with listings like "veal/vegetables" and no description so you're going to have to talk to the waitress (who was extremely knowledgeable)... More

Been to TSK 2x now. The food is very good, both in terms of quality and presentation. And its a BYOB!! The rest holds about 40? and has interesting high table in the center for either groups of 8 +/- or individuals/couples.At times it is a bit loud because of the relatively small space (tables are NOT crowded at all)...

The Farm to Fork concept is in good hands here. The menu varies almost daily based on market availabilty. Every time we are in Newport we eat here, the BYOB adds to the enjoyment. We've had the good fortune of Anna being our server this time and on previous occasions, she is always delightful and sincere. TSK is on our... More

Good food with a fun, casual neighborhood feel. We went Restaurant week so the prices were set and reasonable. Am not sure I would pay full price however (they are on the pricey side). Then again, maybe the restaurant week offerings were on the weak side (which is not a good way for first timers to sample a restaurant) as... More

I made a reservation for 2 without a problem at the last minute on a Sunday. We brought a bottle of wine. My husband had a bone marrow and escargot appetizer followed by the striper entree. He thought the striper was a tiny bit over cooked but loved his meal just the same. I had the fried chicken which was... More

We had a party of three at TSK. No problem getting a reservation, but we were there on a Tuesday night. We skipped appetizers and split mains. The smoked chicken was amazing, and a lot of food. We also loved the whole chilean sea bass and the striper was good. The sea bass was smaller, and the striper is a... More

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
