Lunch in Newport!

1 (12)Another rainy and dreary spring day in the northeast!  I’m getting used to them and rather enjoy going out on a Saturday morning for a late breakfast or an early lunch.  Today, in the rain we headed off to Oceancliff Hotel in Newport, RI, it is beautiful there, even in the overcast skies and rain!

We were seated in the Safari Room with beautiful views of Jamestown, RI.  Lunch was quite the treat!

My asparagus puree with cheddar and pancetta was just what the weather ordered,

and Jeff enjoyed his kale and quinoa salad.

 For the entries I had a grilled chicken “Waldorf” salad

and Jeff ordered the Newport’s Po’boy!  I have to admit my salad was delicious but I thoroughly enjoyed some bites from Jeff’s fried clam Po’boy  on a brioche roll.

Both meals tasted even better than they looked, and they looked very appetizing!

We finished off our meal with delicious deserts that we shared!

It was a great ending to a wonderful lunch with extraordinary views at every angle!

Loving these rainy days!
