A classic, nautical theme pervades
the decor, which is modelled to the
likeness of a ship’s cabin. Faux portal
windows adorn the walls and, thanks
to bright, photorealistic paintings, appear to look out onto a lively scene in
Hamilton Harbour. Scattered around
the edge of the room are semi-circular
booths; regular table seating is available in the center of the restaurant.
The Newport serves classic
dishes with a modern twist. A bold and
con¬fident kitchen turns out imaginative
creations and captures guests’ attention
with inspired food presentation and
plating techniques. Take the much-loved poutine, for example, which is
served smothered and loaded in a mini
cast iron dish. Many other appetizers
and desserts are delivered to the table
on thick slabs of slate! You can even
watch chefs shuck oysters and build
charcuterie platters at the live action
prep station in the middle of the room.
When you arrive, check the black-
board specials for new and exciting
appetizers, main courses and desserts.
A must-try is the “Drunken Mussels”,
flavoured with white wine, garlic and
cherry tomatoes and plated with a
handful of french fries. The fresh raw
bar is also outstanding. Another popu-
lar dish is Fancy Pork Ribs. Gluten-free
options and a cheekily-written “young
adults menu” are also available.
Last but not least, The Newport
loves its beer. In fact, the restaurant
boasts the largest selection of local
and craft beers on island. Accent your
meal with one of over 40 international
brews or go for their sampler trio if
you’d rather spread the love around.
Nothing pairs better with a big ol’
frosty beer than their “Serious Burger”:
marbled Wagyu beef, aged cheddar,
garlic aioli, egg and bacon - yum!
