The Chanler at Cliff Walk
Like Scandinavia, Newport is known for its natural beauty and vast coastlines. Our three outdoor heated yurts are inspired by the Scandinavian concept of Hygge (pronounced hue-guh). From the Norwegian word meaning “well being” and the feeling of coziness, we've created an experience to warm your belly, heart and soul. The private Nordic setting overlooks the moonlit waters of the Atlantic Ocean and our 150 year old statuesque mansion. Our staff will provide each guest with bespoke, unobtrusive service throughout your experience in a heated candlelit yurt. The culinary team, led by Executive Chef Jacob Jasinski, has crafted two 4-course Prix Fixe menus based on traditional Scandinavian cuisine with a focus on game and fish or locally grown winter vegetables.
About The Menu Traditional Scandinavian cuisine isn't terribly different in theory than the approach we take to traditional New England cuisine. We look to our immediate region and cook the food that is available when it is its most delicious. They are paired with ingredients that make sense, available during the same season, grow in the same general area, share a similar flavor profile and then use those ingredients to accent one another to make a flavorful dish. The techniques applied use methods of preservation like curing with salt and sugar, brining, smoking, storing in fats/confit and fermenting. These techniques have been around for centuries and provide a depth of flavor and a level of authenticity to the foods we are serving.
