Established in 1995 by Danish born chef, John Bach-Sorensen, ASTERISK Newport combines cultural flare with traditional processes to create an experience that sets itself apart from the rest. Experience our local fresh seafood, hand-cut beef filets, delectable grilled pizzas or any of our other mouthwatering dishes. Located in the heart of downtown Newport, Rhode Island, ASTERISK is known to have one of the most unique atmospheres in town. Sited in a renovated historical service garage, our 12' over head doors and open floor plan create a wonderful communal atmosphere unlike any other curbside establishment in Newport. In the summer you may dine alfresco on our patio just steps from Lower Thames Street, or enjoy our large bar area and dining room with open kitchen where you may watch our talented chefs hard at work. Our chefs are renowned for their creative combinations of fresh herbs and classic sauces, creating the perfect blend of innovation and originality to all their dishes. Being a FOOD NETWORK favorite, our martinis have often been claimed "the best in town!"
