Scampi's, 15 Point Road To Take Part in Newport Restaurant Week
Restaurant Week returns to the area on Nov. 2. Will you attend?
The following is from a press release.
Newport Restaurant Week returns this Nov. 2 to 11 with more than 45 participating restaurants throughout Newport and Bristol Counties, Rhode Island.
Now a highly anticipated fall tradition, restaurants dish up extraordinary cuisine at prix fixe prices with ingredients sourced from local farmers, foragers and fisherman. As in years past, the prices remain at $16 for a three-course lunch and $30 for a three-course dinner.
This fall’s 10-day affair will highlight local food purveyors, new seasonal menu items and the talents of creative chefs who orchestrate unforgettable dining experiences. Visiting gourmands can come for dinner and stay for breakfast by taking advantage of reasonably priced Newport Restaurant Week lodging packages while culinary enthusiasts can savor food-related events including cooking classes, Greenvale Vineyards’ Harvest Festival and the Taste of Newport—a savory extravaganza benefiting Child & Family, the largest and most comprehensive social service provider in Newport County. Information on packages and the growing list of events can be found at GoNewportRestaurantWeek.com.
Updates on events, participating restaurants and menus can be found via our social networks, including Newport Restaurant Week’s Facebook page and on Discover Newport’s Twitter feed (use hashtag #nptrw). Also, diners from Providence and around the state can rely on Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) bus routes for $4 per round trip ticket or $6 for an all-day pass to save money on parking and gas.
Participating restaurants span both counties. Chefs from Brick Alley Pub (Newport), Hourglass Brasserie (Bristol), Jamestown Fish (Jamestown), Scampi (Portsmouth), and Windward at the Hyatt Regency (Newport) will appear on The Rhode Show on WPRI TV 12 in advance of and during Newport Restaurant Week, each cooking up a dish that will be featured on their prix fixe menus.
For the first time ever, Newport Restaurant Week will be sponsored in part by OpenTable.com; a free, real-time online restaurant reservation program.
Participating OpenTable restaurants have a reservation button on their individual listing on the GoNewportRestaurantWeek.com web site (along with their Restaurant Week menus) so that users can conveniently book a time to dine directly from the site. Additional sponsors include Absolut Vodka, American Express, Brancott Wines, the East Bay Chamber of Commerce, the Newport County Chamber of Commerce, Samuel Adams and Yelp.com.
