Newport, RI Restaurants at The Chanler

Exceptional Dining at the Cliff Walk

As of today, March 17th Cara, The Cafe and The Bar must temporarily suspend on-property service to the general public, local community and in-house guests.

Throughout our restaurant closure, we will provide room service options for all meal periods to our in-house guests.

When we reopen, we will be delighted and eager to welcome you back and our team will be waiting with open arms. Thank you to all of our loyal guests who are keeping our spirits high with support and words of encouragement.

Cara 

Boasting beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean as well as our open kitchen featuring a custom-crafted French Bonnet cooking suite, Cara is the crown jewel of The Chanler, providing guests a memorable, curated dining experience. Translating to "dear one" in Italian and "friend" in Gaelic, Cara's name conveys a simple, yet beautiful, juxtaposition to the restaurant’s creative dishes.

Executive Chef Jacob Jasinski has carefully crafted menus that draw influence from his personal experiences and travels. From France to New England, Cara's menu and vibe is a modern interpretation of fine dining. Using the abundance of ingredients found in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean and farms throughout New England, each customized gastronomic journey involves your choice of an a la carte three or four-course menu, perfectly complemented by our extensive selection of wines from our award-winning wine list. For the adventurous connoisseur, our Forbes four star restaurant offers an eight-course blind tasting menu. Your trust is rewarded with specialty ingredients not offered on the nightly menu. In addition, our chefs are given the freedom to showcase their personal love for food while providing first hand interaction descriptions of and questions about each course they prepare. 

Guests are encouraged to share dietary preferences, restrictions and allergies with our culinary team before their arrivals for the most personalized dining experience. 

The Café

Serving as the property’s more casual dining space, The Café offers breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Enjoy Mediterranean-inflected modern New England cuisine in an energetic and casual setting alongside stunning views of the ocean.

Have a seat at one of our tables or at our beautifully decorated mahogany and cognac colored wood bar. Seasonally, seating for The Café is offered on our outside terrace, where you can enjoy ocean breezes just steps away from Newport’s Cliff Walk.
