Newport, RI Restaurants at The Chanler

Exceptional Dining at the Cliff Walk


Boasting beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean, 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 3-course Prix Fixe menu or a a 6-course surprise Degustation 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 (in-house guests only), lunch and dinner daily. Enjoy modern New England cuisine in an energetic and casual setting alongside stunning views of the ocean.

Seasonally, seating for The Café is offered on our outside covered terrace, where you can enjoy ocean breezes just steps away from Newport’s Cliff Walk. This space does offer clear siding and heat during inclement weather.
