Two great cities!
We agree, but let’s add to the Newport description a bit.
A romantic getaway has to include a stay at the beautifully renovated Gurney’s Newport where New York sophistication meets New England charm. Every Monday through Thursday, their Regent Lounge offers dollar oysters from 5-7pm and the award winning Scarpetta delivers signature classics as well as seasonal dishes, fresh seafood selections sourced locally, and a world-class wine list. No matter the time of year, your experience is sure to be a memorable one at Gurney’s.
Looking for a cozy romantic spot that the locals love? Head to Tavern on Broadway where every Tuesday night their date night menu offers two three-course meals AND a bottle of wine for only $45. It’s a deal that’s tough to beat and their buck-a-shuck raw bar on Wednesday nights will provide you with as many libido boosting oysters as you need! the locals love Tavern on Broadway and they have the friendliest staff in town.
