Fodor's Review

A lively bar scene, intimate dinners by the fire, or relaxing lunches overlooking Newport Harbor can be had at the Clarke Cooke House. The first-floor Candy Store has casual fare and a sushi bar. The second floor has casual dining in the Bistro and cocktails on The Midway, while The Porch and Club Room on the third floor have elegant fine dining with tuxedoed waiters. The refined menu reflects traditional New England meats, poultry, and seafood with inventive twists, such as a salmon fillet with miso dressing and sesame vinaigrette. The clam-heavy, brothy Newport clam chowder has to be the best in the city. Save room for the signature Snowball in Hell, a decadent ball of ice cream and chocolate mousse dipped in chocolate and topped with toasted coconut.
