Newport Restaurant Recommendations

Jump to last reply

We just spent a quick couple of days in Newport and I want to thank those of you who posted restaurant recommendations. Our best meal by far was at the Cheeky Monkey on Perry Mill Wharf. We had wild mushroom soup, lobster paella, and bananas foster. The food and service were superb.

The lobster paella was a special (not on the menu) but the waiter said it is available most of the summer when the chef can get fresh lobster. He suggested calling in the late afternoon to see if it would be served that night. Each serving of lobster paella was made with a 1.25 pound lobster, 2-3 scallops, 12 mussels, and well-flavored rice.

We had a tasty breakfast at Norey's, 156 Broadway. The chocolate chip pancakes were tasty, and the breakfast sandwich had a generous portion on Virginia ham. Having tasted Norey's breakfast, I wish we had had time to return and try it for dinner.

In contrast, the Moorings and Christie's were rather average. Nothing wrong, just nothing exciting.
