Spring is here and we are ready to welcome the warmer weather and longer days. One of our favorite Spring staples, Newport Restaurant Week, is right around the corner! From March 27 to April 7, participating restaurants offer deals on their prixe fix menus. Lunch is a steal at $16 and dinner is a bargain at $35. It’s the best time to find a new favorite or experience an old favorite in a new way.
Two of our Newport tour partners are participating in this Spring’s Restaurant Week. The King of Comfort Food, The Wharf Pub is offering a three-course lunch and dinner. Dine in style at the Vanderbilt Grille and enjoy their creative creations.
