Bar and Board Bistro Getting Spotted in Newport

LKRE’s latest love is the recent endeavor by Carolyn Rafaelian, the owner of Alex and Ani Jewelry.  Having just opened late fall, at 282 Thames Street, Bar and Board Bistro is sure to be a summer staple guests will willingly “get spotted” at amidst its modern design and contemporary furnishings.  Architect Shahin Barzin and Designer Gail Melikian are responsible for the design, (both style and design Carolyn’s business and private properties), ultimately creating the mood we admire.

One of the most important components of this restaurant is of course, the food! Many of the appetizers and entrees are served on wooden cutting board (hence the “board” in the restaurant’s name). There are a variety of dishes to choose from that are all classic and uniquely distinctive – and you can’t forget to try their classic cocktails. Our recommendation? Perch up at the bar for a signature cocktail (we love the Midori Sour) and their “Bar Board.”
