Dinner for Two at Fluke and a Hometown Holiday Gift from Tiverton Four Corners

It’s Thursday, which means its a Dinner for Two night at Fluke, a newly introduced winter special that’s a refreshing take on winter dining deals. Every week, diners can enjoy a new Dinner for Two menu on Wednesdays and Thursdays, which include an appetizer to share, a soup or salad for each, a main course and dessert for $49 (add a featured wine selection for $100). I had the pleasure of enjoying Dinner for Two a few weeks ago and with the holidays on our doorstep, it was a pleasure to check our stress at the door and savor such rich flavors. Dimly lit and with spacious seating, the expansive windows capture on of the most romantic views Christmas in Newport: white light illuminate the trees on Bowen’s and Bannister’s Wharf while the shops and restaurants are dressed in their holiday finery with ribbons, greens and wreaths and, in the distance, a lone boat sails lazily across Newport Harbor.

This week, Chef Neil Manacle celebrates his admiration for cuisines of the Mediterranean with a Seafood Paella featuring Salt Cod Croquettes to start, soup or salad, fabulous paella, and a dessert sampler. Next week’s Dinner for Two: Stuffed Veal Breast. Fluke’s third floor lounge is also a captivatingly intimate space, perfect for enjoying their small plates and hand-crafted cocktails. Dinner reservations encouraged. Please mention Dinner for Two as you make your reservation, 849-7778.

Today’s Hometown Holidays gift idea comes from the charming village of Tiverton Four Corners (which, by the way, is sporting a snazzy new web site). Artisans Michael Roseberry and Bruce Winn are the masterminds behind Roseberry Winn, designing exquisite pottery and tile from their circa 1840 studio/storefront. We love this elegant teapot, which matches other pieces in Roseberry Winn’s tea service set, so owned can expand their collection. The teapot holds 32 oz. of water and buyers can select a glaze color from a diverse palate  (retails for $150.00).
