The Black Pearl
Sitting at The Black Pearl, you can almost hear the sailors from old-timey Newport singing and stomping on the floorboards. However, we’re confident the menu is leagues better than anything they were eating in the 1600s. You’ll see fresh fish and a raw bar, fancy pub food like chicken pot pie in a buttered pastry, and a great burger with rosemary onion confit. Tables are first come, first serve, so head here for lunch and grab a spot in the wood-trimmed dining room or one of their patio tables behind ropes in the middle of bustling Bannister’s Wharf. You can also always pick up a cup of their famous New England clam chowder from their takeout window and sit on a bench as you watch the boats sail by.
