The Best American Cities for Foodies.
14. Newport, RI
Readers’ Choice Rating: 81.3
Though there are fish shacks aplenty in this tony New England city—Flo’s Clam Shack is a 78-year-old institution—Newport’s most noteworthy eateries offer more upscale takes on seafood in more formal settings. Which makes sense, given Newport’s island location and former life as a Gilded Age playground. At Castle Hill Inn Dining Room overlooking Narragansett Bay, chef Karsten Hart emphasizes local ingredients in dishes like broiled cod with smoked seaweed butter. At Spiced Pear, fine diners line up for the New England Tasting Menu, which—if you’re lucky—will include chilled local oysters with horseradish bacon sorbet.
