The Spiced Pear at The Chanler at Cliff Walk offers the perfect pairing of Old World elegance and sophistication along with the tastes and epicurean delights of the 21st century. Led by Executive Chef Tom Duffy, the Spiced Pear has become nationally acclaimed for its contemporary American cuisine featuring local New England ingredients served by an impeccable staff.
Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served daily in three distinct Newport dining atmospheres including the Spiced Pear’s formal Dining Room, The Bar, and The Terrace – open seasonally. In addition, 24-hour mansion room service is available to guests who fancy a bite in the privacy of their guestroom.
The Spiced Pear’s primary dining room features an open-air kitchen, grand fireplace, and views of the Atlantic Ocean and Easton’s Beach. Well known for its signature ‘New England Prix Fixe,’ the restaurant features a symphony of six or nine courses of local New England fare each night in addition to an a la carte menu featuring Continental cuisine.
Breakfast and lunch are also served in the main dining room each day and feature signature items such as Spiced Pear French Toast for breakfast or the award-winning GQ Burger for lunch – rated the 4th best burger to try before you die from the editors of GQ Magazine. For breakfast and lunch, resort casual attire is appropriate. For dinner service, business casual attire is recommended (men may feel more comfortable with a jacket). Reservations are required for dinner service.
The Bar of the Spiced Pear offers an elegant, yet smart atmosphere. With several signature drinks, including the famous Spiced Pear Martini and The Cliff Hanger, it is the perfect location for an afternoon or before-dinner drink, or the last nightcap before turning in for the evening.
The Bar also features a Spiced Pear-inspired lighter fare menu for appetizers and light meals. Each Friday night, The Bar also serves as the location for 'Friday Night Jazz,' the hotel's live music series, popular with guests of the hotel and the local community.
The Terrace is the hotel's outdoor patio restaurant overlooking Cliff Walk and the Atlantic Ocean. The Terrace brings an all new perspective to Newport’s waterfront dining scene every summer season. As the only restaurant with an entrance directly off of Cliff Walk, the restaurant is equally popular with travelers along the Cliff Walk and guests of The Chanler. Capitalizing on the award-winning culinary creations of the Spiced Pear, the Terrace serves breakfast, lunch, and an a la carte Spiced Pear-inspired dinner menu.
As The Terrace's experience is dependent upon the weather, reservations are not accepted.
