The Newport Experiment

We are going to try lunch at a restaurant in Newport next week (June 11th).

We have pick a restaurant so sound off by Friday. We will only keep the location in rotation if we get a good turnout.


Update: Well, the names I am getting the most are Claddagh's on the Levee (way ahead), Packhouse and York Street.

Last chance to check in!

The winner is: Packhouse Meats


  1. Here are 3 great local small business suggestions:
    1. The Packhouse on Monmouth Street
    2. Pompilio's on Washington Street
    3. York Street Cafe on York Street

  2. I will try to attend. I like Strong's Brick Oven Pizzeria but I can't remember what the seating situation is like. Buckhead is another option if we're trying to avoid the parking garage.

  3. Oh, Packhouse looks yummy. Looks like they might have a hard time fitting a large group but I'd be happy to try it. I've had nothing but bad experiences at Pompilio's.

  4. I have not been to Packhouse but like York Street.

    Email suggestions include:

    Joe's Crab Shack
    Bar Louie's
    Brothers (at the Levee)
    Don Pablo's
    Bayou Fish House

    One note:

    Parking is free in the Levee garage 11am until 2pm on weekdays.

  5. Packhouse sounds interesting.
    Not sure I can attend yet, but I'm way overdue.

  6. Well, the names I am getting the most is Claddaghs (way ahead), Packhouse and York Street.

    What does everyone think?

    1. We are interested. My vote is for Packhouse but I am open to any of them. Let us know where you decide. Thanks for setting this up Christina!!

  7. Are the people voting for Claddagh French? Their vote doesn't count.
    Packhouse gets my vote too. If we decide on some other place, I'm going to embarrass everyone by picking up three tacos with tripe at La Mexicana and carrying it in. :-)
