Newport >Food & Dining > Norey's
Freaking Good.. Just tried it last night after hearing very good things. Believe the hype, amazing beer list, ludacrisly delicious food, relaxed atmosphere. Everything was just perfect. If you are reading this trying to decide if you should go, turn off your computer and get a booth at Norey's. You can thank me later.
Apparently one of Heaven's Restaurants has fallen to Earth....
My family literally stumbled into Norey's on a Wednesday evening in mid-July, having scoured that stretch of Broadway for anything reasonable. Hungry, frustrated, and lacking any information about the restaurant, we assumed we would enter, take one look, and quickly exit.
Yet from the moment we walked through that front door, until our reluctant exit two hours later, we experienced some of the the finest food, environment, and service EVER - regardless of price.
Spotlessly clean, yet unpretentious - the word 'balanced' keeps coming to mind.
From the astounding appetizers of grilled artichoke hearts and crab cakes to the incomparably delicious main courses of flank steaks and specialty salads to the indecently light and irresistible desserts of bread pudding and chocolate cake, this simple act of dining took on an almost reverent glow. Tyler Cullen, the owner and chef, is a culinary genius. The wait staff is wonderful, ( yes, drop dead gorgeous too..), and to top it off, the price is totally reasonable and family friendly.
Yes. A little bit of Heaven has definitely settled on Earth. Right there in Newport, Rhode Island.
Best Spinach Salad EVER. I still dream about the spinach salad here. I had it 3 years ago and have tried to recreate it at home, but to no avail. It included fresh Maine blueberries, amazing goat cheese, with their heavenly homemade balsamic dressing. I need to get back to Newport if for no other reason than this place!
Great find in Newport. We are Newporters and had yet to try this restaurant....well we missed out. We were never sure what kind of restaurant it was with the counter seating. But the dinner menu had so many choices. I had the fried goat cheese with spinach, out of this world as well as the the spinach salad. The pasta entree was great (large portion) and chix. quesadilla was wonderful....The best part of the meal was dessert.....The yellow cake with choc. frosting...Also this was poss. the best service Newport has. We plan on going back many times
