Classic Historic. There’s a magical old Newport feel about this landmark restaurant in the center of Bannister’s Wharf overlooking the docks and harbor-front. This sea captain’s home was built in 1780, then transformed over the years while keeping lots of historic integrity including fireplaces and creaky wood floors in place. There are multiple levels, each with their own vibe and numerous bars. The French influenced menu relies heavily on local fish, seafood and regional produce. You’re best bet for dinner would be the sautéed lobster or oven roasted de-boned half chicken which is perfectly seasoned and served with delicious sautéed corn with cider vinaigrette and roasted potatoes. When choosing your dining experience, note that the lower level is the casual dining space with a relaxed yachting theme and raw bar. While the porch on the top floor is their fine dining venue with beautiful hurricane lantern topped tables and a pink striped tent like ceiling. The prix fixe Sunday brunch is a great value with a complimentary Mimosa or Bloody Mary and chocolate mousse for dessert. They're also open for lunch on weekends.
