This exquisite Relais & Châteaux property, set high up on a point overlooking Narragansett Bay, is a special occasion destination. Whether you dine outside on The Lawn on an Adirondack chair watching the yachts in the harbor, or inside in one of the four intimate dining rooms, the atmosphere feels rarefied. That's no surprise, since the setting is a grand 1875 mansion, with wonderful water views all around. Sunday brunch is a particularly popular meal here, with brioche French toast and a signature Maine lobster hash. Ingredients are sourced from local farms and fishermen and the menu is ever-changing, but expect delicacies at dinner like chouriço-filled Georges Bank scallops and grass-fed beef tartare. For main courses, you might see a roasted guinea hen breast with parsnip risotto, or a grilled pork tenderloin with local littlenecks. Patrons are well-dressed, service is impeccable, and reservations are highly recommended.
