Mr. valleywriter went with the "Rasta Pasta," which mixed blackened chicken & shrimp with red & green bell peppers and sun dried tomatoes in a Parmesan cream sauce over penne. I personally would've liked more kick to something called "Rasta Pasta," but Mr. valleywriter seemed to enjoy it.
We walked off lunch by checking out a few more shops (including an incredible little chocolate boutique, which will soon be getting its own post) before heading back to the car and back to the Valley. On the way home, we both remarked how Newport reminded us of a unique cross between Boston and Key West. Next time, i think we'll plan a little more in advance and actually spend the night down there so we can see a bit more. Definitely worth the trip!
