Clarke Cooke House
Clarke Cooke House is the type of place where you’ll find couples stopping in for a break from their yacht, businessmen and women power lunching in the downstairs dining room, and a summertime-only sushi bar. There’s a lot happening, but prioritize a table upstairs where you’ll get a great view of the harbor and a pricey-but-excellent meal. While this is the place for classic Newport-style food like local oysters, lobster, and halibut, the steak au poivre and sauteed duck breast won’t disappoint either. Whatever you do, don’t miss their signature dessert: the snowball from hell. Big enough for two, it’s ice cream served in a chocolate-coated goblet and drizzled in chocolate syrup.
