York Street Cafe
After a miscellany of incarnations since the building's assembly in the late 1880s, York Street Café in Newport billets a first floor restaurant, second floor lounge, third floor art gallery, and fourth floor art studio. If the weather cooperates, loaf on the garden patio for lunch and share a Swiss Fondue or Mediterranean conversation platter with a friend ($18). The homey interior cuddles the dining area with bookshelves rife with treatises and doohickeys. Settle in for dinner, peek at the wine list, and warm your insides with modern comfort food like vegan polenta packed with sautéed vegetables and pumpkin seeds ($18-$23) or a sandwich supplied with a side of homemade green bean casserole ($12). York Street Café regularly schedules live entertainment for a complete night out.
