Any recommendations for a great lunch/early dinner in Newport, RI? A friend and I will be spending the day there on monday, and this will be our big chow day. We don't mind spending a little more than we would on the average lunch, and if I had to narrow my request down to a specific type of food, I would go for local specialities (I grew up in New England, but have been on the west coast for the last 8 yrs. No one, and I mean no one, can make decent chowder, pizza or bagels in the west coast.)
I'm also happy to spend the day snacking my way across town - so other must-eat suggestions would be greatly appreciated as well.
