We can’t stress how important it is for you to come to Perro Salado during the summer and sip a cilantro-jalapeño margarita. Especially if you sit in the shade of the cherry tree that grows through the middle of their patio. This historic home-turned-Mexican restaurant is right in the middle of downtown Newport, and often has live music at the kitschy back bar where you should post up and snack on some chips and guac. Definitely stay for dinner and order the queso fundido, steak quesadillas, and weekend-only carne asada for two, but know the Sunday brunch is also excellent with sticky ribs, or chilaquiles and huevos rancheros. In the winter, request a coveted seat at one of the tables near the fireplace.
