Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House
Wisely, a new addition to the Newport dining scene is starting off modestly; it's little more than a pub, but enough more that it shows good promise and even some adventurousness. Malt opened this summer with little fanfare but soon earned a growing fan
Pretty fancy for a pub

Fine, but not necessarily French
