Christie’s serves casual comfort food infused with a bit of nostalgia as well as some Asian influences, together with an extensive classic cocktail list. The Christie’s Burger has been voted one the best in New England while the Pu Pu Platter is a retro favorite among those sharing a few dishes. All of the cocktails are old school classics and stand alongside a moderately priced American beer list.

Unfortunately, due to work and life obligations, I was unable to attend the Thursday night beer tasting at Christie's for the last several weeks. However, I was finally able to get back in the swing and, as I expected, they haven't missed a beat. The brewery of the night was Founder's Brewery and they showcased 4 of the brewery's finest. Although the beer was unique and flavorful, it was overshadowed by Chef Charlie Hamilton's cuisine. Each course was extremely well executed, but the smoked rabbit terrine and the wagyu beef carpaccio are dishes that I will go to bed dreaming about. They were passionately prepared and everyone at the tasting was in complete euphoria once they tasted both dishes. And, to end the meal, the golden fried, nutella stuffed banana with vanilla bean ice cream and caramel made me wishing these tastings were held every night. In addition, the GM, Kat, was her typical self and conveyed her love of beer and food by explaining each pairing intelligently and passionately. Overall, another successful tasting and looking forward to what next week has to offer.

I went to the beer pairing this evening, which they have every Thursday. It was really amazing. It is obvious that the chef and the bar have a true passion for making this dinner count. The pairing was perfect and the atmosphere was truly a fun time. I will most definitely be back!

Leaving yet another beer pairing that I am leaving stuffed and completely satisfied. This weeks brewery was Founder's from Grand Rapids, Michagan. The four courses were splendid and the beer matched with perfection. I am telling you, save thee date for a beer pairing in the near future.

First of all I eat out a lot. They weren't extremely busy, but the manager Kat, and bartender Michael made it one of those expirences you can't forget. They were really friendly, and most of all hilarious! Very knowledgeable of the products they were serving. Michael recommended the fried chicken. It was amazing, like he said! I will definitely return when I come back to Newport! :). Kodos to Kat and her staff!

Sat outside on a warm summer night, the decor is breathtaking, vintage spectacular. Such an amazing space for a possible bridal shower, small wedding rehearsal diner. Didn't eat but had specialty drinks, strong, creative and delicious :)
