Newport Restaurant Week (NRW) begins anew this Friday, November 4, at over 55 restaurants in Newport & Bristol Counties. Diners at participating restaurants get to enjoy three-course lunches for $16, and three-course dinners for $30, from the 4th through November 13. In talking with the NBCCVB about this year’s Restaurant Week we decided to do something a little more interesting than just writing about the events and listing restaurants. Here we have a sneak preview of some items on the NRW menu at Trafford, a restaurant at 285 Water Street in Warren that’s not only a NRW first-timer, but also almost brand new, having opened a little over four months ago.
A Visit to Trafford for Newport Restaurant Week, November 4 – 13, 2011
