We had dinner during restaurant week in Newport at Clark Cooke House, in the Candy Store Restaurant. This was our second time dining here, and again we enjoyed a delicious dinner in a beautifully atmospheric restaurant.
For this dinner we chose an option off of the restaurant week special menu. We opted for the pan fried crab cake for an appetizer which was wonderful. For the entree we had the braised lamb shank. This was absolutely delicious! The meat was so tender that it fell right off the bone!!! It was accompanied by a butternut squash risotto, pancetta, and black trumpet mushrooms.
To top it all off, we had the Snowball in Hell for dessert. It was decadent and delicious. I don't want to even think how many calories were in that, but definitely worth the indulgence.
There was special pricing for restaurant week, so on top of being a wonderful dinner, it was a great bargain! The service was superb, and the atmosphere and food top notch. We also liked that The Clarke Cooke House takes reservations.
