This weekend we were lucky enough to take part in Newport Restaurant Week in Newport, R.I. Newport is a great town to visit in the first place: the mansions, the scenery, the quaint (meaning expensive with lots of breakables) shops and the ocean. This week, many restaurants
up the ante by having tastings and prix fixe meals. Although we did not dine at any of the amazing establishments, we enjoyed the local open market featuring Rhody Fresh milk, Cabot Cheese, and some local wines. All of the items are grown or produced in RI. The second event we attended was the chocolate dessert tasting at Architect's Inn. They featured Sweenor's Chocolates. We had a good laugh while we were trying to find the Inn as it felt like we were being taken on a treasure hunt as it was tucked away down a dirt road with old trees all around us. We sampled some great chocolates and then spent some time on the beaches and at stone cold creamery. What can be better than being with your husband and kids while enjoying food and the outdoors?
