What to Eat in Newport

With Narragansett Bay to the west and Easton Bay to the east, it's hardly surprising that Newport's dining scene focuses mainly on seafood. Regional seafood specialties include stuffies (or stuffed quahog clams), Rhode Island clam chowder (which has a clear broth unlike the clam chowders found in Manhattan and New England) and Rhode Island-style calamari (breaded and fried squid rings served with hot peppers). Newport eateries like Brick Alley Pub, The Port Seafood Grill & Bar and Midtown Oyster Bar all receive high marks for their seafood offerings.

Other specialty Rhode Island items are also available in Newport. Johnnycakes (or flat cornmeal pancakes) can be tried at Bishop's 4th Street Diner. Apple-centric staples like apple cider, apple butter and apple pie (which use apples picked from some of New England's apple orchards) are sold throughout the city. And no visit to Newport would be complete without trying a glass of coffee milk. The milk and coffee syrup concoction is the official state drink of Rhode Island.
