Restaurant Week Returns

More than 55 restaurants throughout Newport and Bristol counties will participate in the fall edition of Newport Restaurant Week on Nov. 2-11. Celebrate the local cuisine by savoring two-course prix fixe lunches for $20, three-course prix fixe dinners for $35, and a selection of three-course “premier menu” prix fixe dinners for $50.

For the first time since its inception in 2006, Newport Restaurant Week will see a price increase and introduce a new structure for the event’s lunch offerings.

For dinner, three-course menus will be offered at the existing $35 price point, as it has been since 2014, while some restaurants will offer a three-course “premier menu” with cocktail, beer or wine pairings or “flights.”

Participating restaurants are added to DiscoverNewportRestaurantWeek.org regularly and their menus are added upon receipt.

This year, Newport Restaurant Week is in its 12th year working with two nonprofit community partners: Eating with the Ecosystem and Strawless by the Sea.

Eating with the Ecosystem believes that both chefs and consumers can play an important role in supporting our marine ecosystems and local fishing communities. By enjoying a diversity of local seafood and adapting our diets to changing ecosystems, we can maintain healthy marine food webs and support resilient fishing communities.

Strawless by the Sea is a collaborative campaign to eliminate plastic straws throughout Newport. Plastic straws are among the top 10 items found during beach cleanups along our shoreline, but more than 10,000 straws per month have been eliminated in the city since the program’s launch this spring.

Newport Restaurant Week is the perfect time for restaurants to make a voluntary commitment to stop offering plastic straws or stirrers by foregoing them or offering a sustainable alternative such as bamboo, paper, glass or stainless steel.

Diners, chefs and restaurateurs can interact throughout the event by using the hashtag #NPTRestaurantWeek on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. For an ongoing, real time index of observations and images throughout the destination, users can include the hashtag #TheClassicCoast in their posts.

The Newport Restaurant Week Advisory Board also selected the dates for the 2019 and 2020 events: April 5-14, 2019; Nov. 15-24, 2019; March 20-29, 2020; and Oct. 30- Nov. 8, 2020.
