Inspired by proprietress Lani Shufelt’s vision of a modern rendition of classic Newport mansion elegance, The Spiced Pear is designed to evoke the spirit of the Gilded Age and a sense of turn-of-the century craftsmanship. An interpretation of a classic Newport mansion dining room, the restaurant is as comfortable as it is contemporary.

Local craftsmen proudly contributed their skills and expertise to furnish the room with its distinctive wine display, archways, curtains and wood floors to create a contemporary, warm and romantic environment. The unimpeded view of the Atlantic Ocean adds to the ambiance.

Executive Chef Matt Voskuil’s menu draws on classic French, Italian and Spanish influences to present a menu as distinct as The Chanler's 20 uniquely designed guest rooms. Guests have the option of experiencing the Chef’s six-course tasting menu with or without wine pairings, or ordering an appetizer, entrée and dessert from our three-course prix fixe menu.

Space is limited in our intimate restaurant, so we recommend reservations be made in advance. The Spiced Pear can accommodate parties of up to six. For groups larger than six, please contact us at 401-847-2244 to determine availability or reserve one of our private dining spaces. The Spiced Pear is an accessible space that can be entered via our accessible outdoor pathway.
