Dine At A Historic Mansion Right On The Ocean At The Cafe At The Chanler In Rhode Island
The Chanler at Cliff Walk is a luxurious Newport hotel, housed inside a lavish historic mansion. It is the epitome of elegance, and staying there is an experience like no other. But you don’t have to be a hotel guest to enjoy an oceanfront meal at The Cafe at the Chanler, which offers a delicious dining experience in an absolutely beautiful setting.
The Chanler is located right on Newport's famous Cliff Walk, and it's stunning in any season.
And while the hotel's signature restaurant, Cara, is a culinary gem, it's also fine dining at its, well, finest. The slightly more laid back option, The Cafe at the Chanler, is equally as excellent.
The Cafe offers outdoor terrace seating and some limited indoor seating mere steps from the Newport Cliff Walk.
While breakfast is reserved for hotel guests, anyone is welcome to come for lunch or dinner (with a reservation).
The setting is quite beautiful, and thanks to the clear siding and heat, the terrace can be enjoyed long past summer.
And there's really nothing like dining with an ocean view.
The menu here consists mainly of small plates and sandwiches along with a few heartier entrees like tuna steak and pasta.
And of course, you can't go wrong with the Chanler Burger, which is served with house-cut fries.
New England has a long history of locally influenced foods, and ingredients used in the food here are sourced from local armers, ranchers, gardeners and fishmongers whenever possible.
This really improves the flavor and quality of the food, and it's noticeable.
Of course, good seafood is a must at places like this, and you'll often see scallops, lobster, and Atlantic cod on the menu.
Pair it with one of the expertly crafted cocktails on the drink list if you so desire -- and don't forget to save room for dessert.
The Cafe and the Chanler is open daily from noon until 3 p.m. for lunch and 5 - 8:30 p.m. for dinner.
Reservations are currently required to dine. Just call 401-847-2244.
