Hands down the best kept secret in Newport! Great food, local ambiance, interesting triple bar scene including a summer garden and rooftop. The solid menu ranges from a heavenly short ribs burger with savory truffle fries to grilled catch of the day. Summertime line-caught sea bass is a menu delight, served in a "lobster nage." Take note, local Atlantic bass feed on molting baby lobsters giving their flesh a sweet crustacean flavor. The appetizers are varied, creative, never boring. Modern standards like the kale caesar salad will have you asking, how did he or she make that? The mark of truly great cuisine is blending ingredients to create unique satisfying flavors. I've eaten my way through the entire menu without ever having a bad meal. The wines and craft beer selections represent the work of a talented sommelier eager to complement the chef's artistry. Full disclosure; I'm a native Newporter who grew up cooking in local restaurants and then traveled and worked far and wide. Bottom line: forget about expensive mediocrity in the downtown restaurants and seek salvation for your palate here!
