As you may already know, I am a huge foodie. So I couldn’t finish telling you about our weekend trip to Rhode Island without mentioning places eat! And because my life revolves around finding good food, I am sharing our best eats in Rhode Island below!
We visited Newport at the heist of summer, so be aware, all restaurants will have huge waiting lines unless you pre-book. Most restaurants are near the harbor area, however bear in mind due to the location, nearly all menus are mostly fish items. Also if you want to check out our weekend trip to Newport, Rhode Island and a day trip to Block Island click here!!!
This is a cute little place by the Marina. There is an outside and inside seating area. I would recommend the outdoor seating as inside is a little hot and sweaty on a hot summers day. We didn’t book in advance and had to wait 1.5 hrs. for our table, which was fine as we had a little walk around the Marina area and ended up having a drink at the Marriott hotel roof top (this was really lovely). When we were finally seated at the Wharf Pub, I ordered the falafel wrap and my husband ordered the pub wings. All washed down with a glass of prosecco. The food was really tasty. Service was good and the food arrived quickly. Great place for those looking for a less for a menu less fishy!
This is a small cute chic place with lots of people and gorgeous smells of Italian food oozing out. We came across this restaurant on our walk down the Wharf area. You should book in advance especially on summer weekends. We had to give this place a miss on the first night as there were no tables. On our date night, we got a table outside. Again highly recommend sitting outside as inside was hot! We ordered the bruschetta to start which was light and fresh. For main course, I ordered the penne al arrabbiata and my husband ordered the four cheese gnocchi.
This was another great dinner spot. Mexican food galore. We were seated outside and my cocktail was served in a jar. We ordered a plate of nachos. These were scrumptious. The nachos were huge and baked with delicious, followed by Quesada’s. Diego’s is more of a Mexican/Asian fusion place than a traditional Mexican joint. Menu is a little pricey, but everything is extremely well presented.
And there you have it! To finish off my food post with a sprinkle filled ice-cream…. ah!
