What is Newport Restaurant Week

Every Spring and Fall, Newport Restaurant Week returns with participating restaurants from Newport and Bristol County's nine coastal towns. The event offers three-course dining deals for lunch ($16) and dinner ($35) that cater to the culinary desires of both frequent restaurant goers and first-time diners alike. Since its start in 2006, Newport Restaurant Week has grown tremendously, but its mission has always remained the same: provide visitors and residents the opportunity to experience the quality, diversity and hospitality that epitomize a Newport County dining experience.
