Chef Albert Bouchard, a longtime Newport fixture, decided to test out a theory starting in 2014: could a restaurant with a monthly rotating cast of guest chefs, flown in from all over the world, find success? Diners responded with a resounding Yes, but it was the bar, not the kitchen, that stole the show. Mixologist Jason Kindness, once voted GQ’s “most inspired bartender,” offers a playful accompaniment to the wildly fluctuating menus. He calls on different herbs, spices and syrups—harissa, cilantro, pomegranate juice—to bolster each visiting chef’s creations, with particular attention to barrel-aged rums.
