Itís only a
little bit after spring officially starts, so hereís hoping it wonít snow on
Newportís parade for "Savor Spring Flavor," this year's theme of Newport Restaurant Week.
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.
prix-fixe meals cost $16 for lunch and $35 for dinner. For a
