Newport Restaurant Week has been a tradition in the City by the Sea since 2006, and runs this year April 4-13. More than 50 restaurants will take part. Chefs will weave tastes of the season into their menus, such as peas and pea tendrils, fava beans, asparagus and grilled ramps, said Geremie Callaghan, owner of Fluke Wine, Bar & Kitchen.

Three-course prix-fixe meals cost $16 for lunch and $35 for dinner. For a full list of participating restaurants, and to take advantage of lodging deals, visit www.discovernewportrestaurantweek.org. Updates can also be found on the eventís Facebook page and Discover Newportís Twitter and Instagram accounts.

If youíre traveling from around the state, consider taking the R.I. Public Transit Authority, with routes costing $4 per round trip or $6 for an all-day pass.
