Newport, RI - Need a lot of help!

Maya | Nov 4, 2002 08:06 AM

My husband and I will be in Newport in January for a long weekend. One day we will be attending a wedding, but we do have two free days open.

I graduated from URI a few years years ago, so I still have somewhat of a working knowledge of the area restaurants.

First, I would like to have a dinner at a romantic, quiet restaurant. I used to like the White Horse Tavern. I don't know if that place is still what it once was, but if not, I am looking for something comprable to that atmosphere.

Secondly, any bar rec's would be appreciated. Nothing with too young of a crowd - just a nice somewhat quiet place to have a couple of drinks.

Also, what is there to do in the winter?! When I used to live in the area, half the city shut down when it was past summer season.

TIA for any advice!
