Newport, RI - The Mooring

This past weekend BISCo. took a trip to Rhode Island and it was just what the doctor ordered.   One of the many delights of the weekend included a visit to The Mooring in Newport.   After a nice scenic drive looking at some rather large homes, we treated ourselves to drinks and nibbles at The Mooring.  The design was clean, nautical, and classic and the bartenders were honest, helpful, and friendly.   I knew it would be a good spot once I walked through the door. 

Our group shared a delicious local cheese plate (with real honeycomb--a first for me),  calamari with banana peppers and olives, and a bag of doughnuts which were lobster, crab, and shrimp fritters with chipotle-maple aïoli.   There wasn't a morsel left.   The clam chowder was perfectly creamy and hearty.   Drinks were great and my company couldn't have been beat.  The view of the water wasn't bad either.  

If you are ever in Newport I recommend a stop here.
