Looking for great meals in Newport, RI

yoyo11 | Nov 11, 2011 03:52 PM

Hey all. I live in Seattle but am coming to Newport for a couple of nights later in the month and was hoping to get some suggestions for lunches and dinners. My wife and I love to eat and while I detest the term "foodie", it probably does adequately describe us. We love all types of foods but creative cuisine and local ingredients are a huge plus.

I've done some research on this board and others and have come up with the following list. Any comments or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Tallulah -- looked like the best dinner option but they're closed for the week we'll be there (11/20 and 11/21)

TSK -- also looked great but also closed for the nights we're in town

Mooring -- seems to be our best option for a dinner but curious to hear thoughts. The website and reviews I've read seem very positive

Fluke -- not sure if they're open but seems like a great choice for a more casual dinner. Maybe they're open for lunch too?

Salvation Cafe -- also looks fantastic but like Fluke, seems more casual. I certainly could be wrong though.

Perro Salado -- we tend to eat a fair amount of Mexican here on the West Coast but I really like the looks of this place too.

As you can see, I think we have it narrowed down a bit but I'd love to hear you thoughts. Thanks much in advance for any responses.
