ABOUT NEWPORT RESTAURANT WEEK Newport Restaurant Week was established in 2006 as an annual event to encourage both local residents and visitors to Newport and Bristol County to experience the vast culinary talent in our destination at an affordable price and to stimulate local business not only at restaurants but at retailed and lodging partners as well. In 2008, Newport Restaurant Week expanded to a bi-annual event; one taking place in early spring and the other in late fall. Restaurateurs often create menus that celebrate seasonal ingredients and promote local food and wine purveyors. Many offer vegetarian and gluten-free alternatives to patrons with food allergies or specialty dietary requirements. Newport Restaurant Week is proudly sponsored by Samuel Adams, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Brancott Wines,, the Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival and Discover Newport.
