You shouldn't need an excuse like Restaurant Weeks to venture into this gem. It is hard to beat in Newport when it comes to amenities and dining. This former mansion houses a terrific restaurant called Muse by Jonathan Cartwright and a delightful Conservatory where they serve lighter fare. What's tempting? Mussels or the Waygu Beef burger with parmesan herb fries or the local crab cake or the...well, you get the point. That's why they give you two weeks for restaurant weeks...you may need more research! For more information, call 846-6200 or visit www.gracehotels.com.

The entrees feature duck leg confit, braised oxtail, local fish and a "Farrotto" which is the grain Farro cooked risotto style. Cool! Desserts don't sound disappointing either. They feature a cool sounding Myer lemon crème brulee, a goat's cheesecake and a hazelnut/milk chocolate panna cotta. For more information, call 849-7778 or visit www.flukewinebar.com.
