If you are staying in town, walk on down to Bowen Wharf’s to where owners, Jeff and Geremie Callaghan will welcome you personally at Fluke Wine, Bar & Kitchen where the food is fresh, local and amazing and they boast a killer artisanal wine list and cocktail menu.
Dishes are imaginative and original, and it is impossible to go wrong. Try the housemade ravioli stuffed with foie gras and dates in parmesan broth or the exceptional cheese & charcuterie plate. The third floor bar is a popular and lively area with a range of award-winning cocktails and a fantastic wine list.
Art imitates life, and sometimes so do cocktails. That’s the delicious case with this rum-and-juices blend that re-creates the rosy palette of a setting sun. The inspiration at Fluke Wine, Bar & Kitchen in Newport, Rhode Island, is easy to spot: its huge picture windows face west, across the harbor’s bristling masts to sunset over Narragansett Bay.

To paint the town red, I hit… Usually Fluke Wine Bar & Kitchen, but most of the time I like to stay in and relax.

With its summer cottages the size of palaces and its century-old status as a yachting capital, Newport is the quintessential playground of American aristocracy. Ambitious upstart restaurants, a boisterous night life and a beachy surf culture belie Newport’s staid reputation.
