  What makes you choose a restaurant? Are you drawn to the geographic location, the ambiance, or a recent media rating…Do you begin to savor the menu simply by reading the entrée descriptions? Or maybe you simply just fall “head over tails.”   Well for me, in this certain instance of course, I was attached to the overall flavor of the restaurant…Fishtail….and pursued deeper into the website to only discover the menu matched my initial reaction.  Who knew a lobster dumpling could taste so good?   Before I get ahead of myself, let me take you through this experience… &n...

There is an incredible feeling that comes over you crossing the Clairborne Pell Bridge into Newport.  It’s a feeling of leaving your “life behind” and being transported to a world where you can blend with the rich and famous.

If you plan to go, visit www.gonewport.com there are great listings of events, accommodations and restaurants.  There is always so...

I am the “new kid” at the Bernards Inn, even though I have been in the Hospitality business for over 17 years. I began working at the Inn in January with the mission to promote our rooms’ product.  Everyone knows The Bernards Inn because of its outstanding culinary reputation, awarding winning restaurant, and memorable social events.   But people will say “Oh ‘Inn’, I didn’t know that meant you actually HAD rooms…I thought it was just a quaint name for the Restaurant!”  We actually have 20 guestrooms that are enjoyed by corporate business travelers, social guests and leisur...
