With warm weather approaching, I'm back on the hunt for great places to sit outdoors. I'm thinking of places like Night Kitchen in Montague MA or Simon Pearce in Vermont (neither of which I've been to, and plan to get there this year). I'm in northern RI, so w/in 90 minutes of that is my target. Here are the other places on my 2011 list:
Golden Lamb Buttery, Brooklyn CT
Sharpe Hill Winery - been to the winery plenty of times, haven't eaten there yet.
My current favorite outdoor seating:
Spiced Pear in Newport - I find the food & service lacking for the price, but the setting makes it worth it, IMO.
Castle Hill, Newport
Last year I went to a place along the CT river valley...pretty sure we were in Deep River. It was in an old mill, 2 stories, cool outdoor seating. Cannot recall the name & googling isn't helping. Does anyone know what that would be?
