Restaurants in Newport
A little like the restaurants a few hours away in Portland, restaurants in Newport tend toward a locavore take on global cuisine, from Italian to Thai. But no surprise, the overriding theme in Newport is still fresh, local seafood. Try out some of the best restaurants in Newport.
From the windows of this well-established Newport restaurant and market, Local Ocean Seafoods, you can watch the fisherman at the wharf unloading their fresh catches (and you can also see the chefs at work in the open kitchen here). This local institution prides itself on supporting sustainable seafood practices. April’s on Nye Beach uses local seafood and produce for European-influenced fare—like a pear and brie salad, the duck savory, and chocolate torte. Shark’s Seafood Bar and Steamer Company is a Newport restaurant on the Bayfront known for its gumbo, seafood, stews and pan roasts. For the best takeout in town, come to Panini Bakery with egg dishes, pizza by the slice, made-from-scratch pastries, and, of course, plenty of good panini sandwiches.
