1. The Lobster Bar (Newport)
The Lobster Bar
hovers over the Newport Harbor, offering 180 degree water views. And as if that wasn't reason enough to dine here, the food happens to be fresh and fantastic.
2. The Slow Rhode (Providence)

The Slow Rhode
got somewhat of a slow start. But recent expansion in the area has drawn more of a crowd, and Rhode Islanders are starting to realize how delicious the food is here.

is a century-old timeless treasure that will open for the season in April (and we can't wait).
8. Chophouse Grille (Wakefield)
We once called this place a
