This season’s Forbes 4-star fine dining restaurant Cara, offers two specially designed menus, each different and distinct in New England culinary excellence. With just three tables set in our most intimate waterfront dining room, guests can relax in a sophisticated candlelit space capped beneath a lustrous gold leaf ceiling. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Cara is the only restaurant in Newport offering fine dining in an exquisite waterfront setting.

Designed by Executive Chef Jacob Jasinski and his award-winning team, guests can select a 3-Course Prix Fixe Menu at 5:00 PM, or a Surprise 6-Course Degustation Menu at 7:45 PM.

Seating 1: 5:00pm 3-Course Prix Fixe, $105 per guest plus tax and service charge

We rely on the best products to provide a foundation for the techniques that highlight each ingredient and the Chef's global influence. Select any three dishes from The Gardener, The Oceans, The Rancher, and The Confiserie.

Seating 2: 7:45pm Surprise 6-Course Degustation Menu, $180 per guest plus tax and service charge

Be at the whim of Executive Chef Jacob, as he takes you on his own international culinary journey and personally prepares for you a 6-Course Surprise Degustation Menu. Taste the travels inspired by his kitchen and dining experiences in Paris and Lyon, the focus resulting from intense training working in Michelin starred restaurants.

During the summer season, his menu may include foie gras, caviar, wagyu beef, bluefin tuna, dry aged duck, lamb and uni. During the winter season, foods such as venison, squab and exotic shellfish may be offered.

If you would like to be surprised and explore a personalized culinary path along with Chef, this 6-Course Surprise Degustation Menu will be an evening to experience. Optional wine pairings also available.

Private Dining 

If you are looking for a more personalized dining experience or are arranging dinner for a larger group, please consider reserving a private dining event at Cara.

The Board Room

Adjacent to the main dining room is The Board Room, our mahogany finished, private dining room, perfect for elegant personal dinners or business entertaining. Accommodating up to eight people, it is the ideal setting for a meal of significance or even a business function. The room’s décor plays off of the rich and inviting ambiance of the restaurant, giving it the same elegant feel but with complete privacy.
