Newport, RI is widely known as a popular summer destination but the holidays can be just as magical.
We were recently featured in Boston Magazine’s “How to Spend a Fabulous Holiday Weekend in Newport, Rhode Island” as one of the top restaurants to try while visiting Newport. “Take a sunset drive with your honey along the famed Ocean Drive before your lavishly comforting meal at OceanCliff’s Safari Room restaurant.”
While you’re here, try some new items from our winter menu such as French onion soup, fig & prosciutto flatbread, lobster carbonara, short rib, and much more.
There are so many wonderful things to do, places to eat, and stay around Newport for the holiday season. “A 90-minute drive lands you in the City by the Sea with all its seasonal splendor—think twinkly lights, holiday gallery nights, Santa sightings, hot toddies by the fire pit, and charming boutiques offering shopping specials so you can tackle everyone on your list.”
Newport has so much to offer all year round, and we hope you will come visit us soon!
We are very excited to be hosting Newport Cocktail Wars at the Safari Room at OceanCliff! Come sample some fantastic cocktails from local bartenders and vote for your favorite.
The event is being held on December 11th from 2-4 pm. Free admission and free samples for all. We can’t wait for you to taste all the incredible drinks from the competitors!
Litchfield Distillery recently stopped by The Safari Room at OceanCliff to chat with our restaurant manager, Reagan Nicole, and sampled our new fall cocktail, the Cocoa Maple Old Fashioned. We are honored to be the first restaurant in Newport to be featured in their Mixology Spirit Series.
The Cocoa Maple Old Fashioned is made with Litchfield’s Distillery’s 4-year Straight Bourbon along with their Bourbon-Barrel Maple Syrup.
“The addition of Dark Creme de Cacao and Cocoa Bitters adds a subtle layer of chocolate flavor, while creating a velvety-smooth mouthfeel. If you love Old Fashioneds, this is a nice, simple spin on the classic recipe—one we think is especially good for the fall and holiday seasons.”
When asked what makes a great cocktail versus just a good cocktail, Reagan said “Quality ingredients and creativity…and recognizing when simplicity is necessary.”
