Owen OConnor took the opportunity while in Newport at a business meeting last week to have dinner at Newport, RI’s famous White Horse Tavern, apparently the oldest tavern in the United States!? Imagine that, right here in little Rhode Island.? The meal was amazing – Owen started with Semolina Fried Local Oysters, then moved on to a perfectly cooked Braised Boneless Short Rib.? While the food was excellent, the craft cocktails were even better.? The creative use of bitters by the genius bartenders really makes this restaurant stand out from the rest in Rhode Island, and certainly from the other Providence, RI dining destinations.? Here is a link to the White Horse Tavern – http://whitehorsenewport.com/.? Check out their menu then stop by!
