My girlfriend's parents will be visiting Newport RI from out west, meeting my parents for the first time. I'm looking for a great, casual place with real local flavor to have lunch. Could be a short drive (or even boat trip? Block Island?) to a nearby town.
Something with a ocean view would be great, or anything thing that would contribute to a quintessential New England experience for these out-of-towners. A good Clam shack, or something on a farm, etc.
Chowhounders, I know you can do this!
