A Rhody Minimoon: Dinner at the Tavern

After a long and active day flying over Newport and walking through the mansions, we were ready to get some food.  We decided to go over to a little restaurant that we heard had good food, but was also known for a specific drink - the Dark and Stormy.  We walked over to the restaurant from our bed and breakfast, and even though we didn't have a reservation, we were seated immediately at The White Horse Tavern.

I'm not sure if I have mentioned it before, but I'm not much of a drinker.  I'll have the occasional mixed drink, or a rare glass of wine, but most of the time, D does the drinking for me.  And because we were at the Tavern, and they are known for the Dark and Stormy, a rum-based drink, he ordered one.  

I tried it, and it was good, but it was too much rum for my liking, so I left that to him, and stuck with water.  

We each ordered entrees, but forgot to take pictures of them because we were so excited to eat them. And they were delicious, but I was so full from mine that I gave the rest to D to finish. 

And then we got the dessert menu. Wow! 

Here's a transcription:

White Horse Crème Brulée A crème brulée topped with a crunchy, caramelized sugar lid and fresh berries
Our Famous Bread Pudding Baked with currants, bourbon, and fresh vanilla bean, served warm with vanilla ice cream and bourbon butter sauce
White Horse Triple Silk A slice of chocolate heaven with smooth layers of creamy white, milk and dark chocolates, served with sauce Melba. A White Horse tradition for over 20 years
Local Apple-Berry Crisp Cinnamon and sugar tossed tart apples and Sweet Berry Farm Berries sprinkled with an oat crumble, baked crispy with vanilla gelato 
House Made Smores White and Dark Chocolate, House made toasted Marshmallows, honey graham crackers, and warm milk chocolate sauce 
Artisan Sorbets or Gelatos Chef’s selection of three of our seasonal artisan sorbets or gelatos crafted for us by Cold Fusion Gelato
Berries and Dark Chocolate Native macerated berries layered with chocolate sauce and chocolate whipped marscarpone, with dark chocolate shavings

Sounds absolutely delicious, right?

D went with the White Horse Crème Brulée.

And I went with the House Made Smores.

We tried each other's desserts, and they were both just as delicious as the other. 

White Horse Tavern is definitely a place we will visit again.  The food was delicious, and the service was excellent!
