Family meal has been one of the most important building blocks in the foundation of our ethos at Stoneacre since day one. As anyone who has worked in the hospitality industry at one point or another knows, family meal can often times be one of the few substantial meals you have, if not the only one on certain days. Well before our humble start at Stoneacre Pantry to our current home in Washington Square at Stoneacre Brasserie, most of our much needed nourishment and fondest memories have always come from the family meal table. These unprecedented times we are in should be no exception. That being said, we would like to do the best we can to help our fellow hospitality friends and family, by cooking family meal twice a week (Wednesday & Saturday) during this quarantine period. We will mainly be preparing soups and occasionally other items that will be chilled, packaged in quart containers (a well recognized family meal vessel…;) and will either be available for delivery or curbside pick up at Stoneacre Wine & Spirits (580 Thames Street, Newport). We will prepare enough twice a week to serve between 150-200 people within the hospitality community. This program will continue throughout the quarantine period or until we can no longer financially support the program.
