When researching where we should go for dinner while we were in Newport, I needed to look no further than the eat.shop new england book our dear friend Chelsey gave us when we launched Map & Menu earlier this year. This was going to be a very special dinner for Michael & I, as he had just accepted a job with his dream (!) company, Automattic, the company who manages WordPress! We thought that a celebration dinner in Newport would make the trip even more special, and Fluke turned out to be the perfect setting for our festive meal!
We began our little celebration with two of our go-to cocktails – an old fashioned for Michael and a manhattan for me. While we would have been content ordering nearly anything to start, we finally decided on the chick pea crostini and the roasted shrimp for our appetizers. With good drinks and delicious apps, we were simply in heaven as we waited for our main courses to arrive! Michael seemed incredibly happy with his grilled pork belly, and my spring vegetable risotto left me in the most contented (and stuffed!) of states.
Unfortunately we didn’t quite have room for dessert after filling up on the deliciousness pictured below, but our dinner at Fluke made for the most wonderful and memorable celebration for such a special occasion!
