Newport >Black Pearl
A Real Pearl. I had the pleasure of dining at this restaurant in 1995 and had the most succulent Rhode Island lobster. Great food, great place!
One simply hasn't "done" Newport if one hasn't dined here..
When the stars are in town--Ted Turner for a sail, Steven Spielberg to film a movie--this is where you're likely to find them.
Even if the place is celebrity-less, there are other stars: rich, oceany clam chowder with a reputation as the best in town, or baked oysters musky with truffles. At one end of the long, narrow building, tuxedoed waiters serve filet mignon au poivre and baby pheasant in a black-truffle and Madeira sauce in the hushed dining room. Here, the service is impeccable and the wine list is seriously overpriced. At the other end, join a crew of sockless back-slappers in the pub to hoist a few and indulge in superior lobster bisque and a burger.
Superb. Elegant dining, beautiful view of harbor, superb service, exceptional food.
food was mouth watering and the ambience was waonderful.
such a beautiful place to sit and have a few drinks
on the water front and enjoy the good company of freiends
A Pearl on the Waterfront. For decades The Black Pearl has been the most popular dining spot in Rhode Island. The dining room is all burnished dark wood with flattering lighting and nautical art on the walls. The food is essentially moodern American. You can't go wrong with local oysters and clam. Seafish changes according to the catch. I highly recommend this place -- but reserve well in advance.
