AAA Inspector Notes
Located within an attractive Victorian seaside inn, the eatery has two main seating areas: One with a lovely fireplace and views of the open kitchen, while the other looks like an enclosed porch area with views of the ocean. Both rooms are accented by hard wood floors, cobalt blue glass hanging light fixtures, framed artwork, wood bead board walls and molded ceilings. Tables are dressed with fine linen cloths, hand-blown oil candles and elegant silverware. Fresh seafood is a specialty. The restaurant prides itself in serving local Rhode Island and Atlantic Coast region farm to table ingredients. The menu changes seasonally and even daily to incorporate what is fresh from local growers, fishmongers and farmers. Guests may begin with a native field greens and teenage head of lettuce salad with licorice herbs, fennel cracker bread, Granny Smith apple, Marcona almond and Meyer lemon vinaigrette. Then enjoy the 28-day, dry-aged roasted, grass-fed beef sirloin or the native poached lobster tail with sweet corn and black summer truffle porridge, celery branch and lobster bouillon nuage. For dessert, the honeycomb crème brûlée infused with honey and flower water is quite memorable.
