After working hard at the bistro for weeks, I think I deserve it. When James mentioned that he needed to take a class that was offered in Newport, all I could say is "When?!" Newport is one of my favorite places, and all I could think about was visiting a few of my favorite friends and restaurants. Anyone who knows me knows that I plan my day, especially while on vacation, around food. James tends to tease me that before eating lunch I'm already planning our next food stop, whether it be dinner, gelato, whatever.. and it's true. I think that it's a good thing I'm a chef, I can blame my tendency to revolve my days around food on that.
A trip to Newport is never complete without a visit to one of my favorite restaurants, ever, Perro Salado (The Salty Dog). They have amazing margaritas, wonderful food, and a very cool atmosphere. One of my favorite things in life is to sit on their patio, with good friends, a pitcher of blood orange margaritas and fish tacos - they have the best! It's always a fabulous time.
When I get back home, and the patio is complete, the whole experience, with my twist will be recreated for you. I can't wait!!
