The food was good, not fabulous, but definitely good. The espressotinis were excellent though. And the atmosphere was pretty cool and trendy although it was a mix of everyone from young to old. Decent bar scene too. Definitely recommend it.
One of Newport's most progressive restaurants serves modern fare in a converted auto garage.. In Short High-minded diners fill Asterisk's high-ceilinged dining room to enjoy French-influenced, Mediterranean fare. Rich risotto dishes vary nightly from mixtures of Asiago cheese to topped with crispy salmon. Lobster fricasee is a rich standout--chunks of fresh lobster served in a sea of spring veggies (peas, spinach, baby carrots) and coated with brandy-tinged, lobster bisque-based sauce.
