I'm planning a trip to Newport, RI for my girlfriends birthday in early may and was thinking about checking out The Spiced Pear. Was wondering if any hounds had been there and if so was it worth the (steep) price? If not what would you suggest for a splurge meal in the area? I am also looking for a more moderately priced place in the Newport area for the same trip. Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.
