Spiced Pear

Cozy oceanfront fine dining in Newport
Much effort was put into making Spiced Pear a standout fine dining experience in Newport's already world-class restaurant scene. The eatery is located inside The Chanler at Cliff Walk boutique hotel. It opened in 2003 after an extensive three-year renovation to the entire estate.

Spiced Pear's open kitchen, which allows you to observe the meticulous preparation put into each dish, boasts a custom-made Bonnet stove that is one of only a handful seen in the United States. Take full advantage of the restaurant's unique culinary experience by reserving the front-and-center chef's table, which comes with a customized menu and allows interaction with the chef throughout dinner.

The exquisitely crafted menu offers inventive New England and continental cuisine, which is beautifully presented. The chef changes the menu seasonally to use only the freshest ingredients. The impeccable waitstaff at Spiced Pear dresses in formal attire and is most attentive, taking great care to accommodate the dietary restrictions of its guests. Last but certainly not least is the restaurant's oceanfront location, which presents guests with one of Newport's most scenic coastal views.
Things to Know
•In addition to its fine-dining dishes, Spiced Pear's kitchen serves up more casual fare in spaces bordering the primary dining room: The Veranda and The Cliff Walk Terrace for lunch, and The Spiced Pear Bar for light dinner bites.

•Upscale yet inviting, the restaurant features high ceilings and lovely chandeliers, and the tables are set with crisp white linens. The decor is nicely subdued, allowing the dramatic ocean view to take center stage.

•The scene in the lunch spaces — The Veranda dining room and The Cliff Walk Terrace — is a bit more relaxed and informal, and better suited to accommodate parties with children.

•The restaurant occupies the south- and east-facing corners of the hotel's first floor, allowing guests to take in its sweeping ocean views and gracious lawn, as well as the main entrance to The Cliff Walk, a storied 3.5-mile walking path along Newport's shoreline.
