Gaby’s Guide to Rhode Island (and a little bit of Connecticut)
Written by: GabyAug 13, 2019
Gaby’s Guide to Rhode Island is ready to roll! And while we didn’t quite cover the entire state, we did a LOT! Here you go!
Earlier this summer we headed out to Ocean House for a What’s Gaby Cooking dinner party and it was PURE MAGIC. I haven’t been on the east coast for the summer in a few years and I forgot how magical it is. The breeze, the food, the vibe, the people… it was lovely. Below you’ll find our favorite places we ate, stay, drink etc! AND a video if you want the play by play!
Ocean House – the chicest hotel in the area! Thats’s where we hosted the WGC dinner and it was beyond lovely. The property is gorgeous and you could easily stay for weeks at a time and live your best life.
Weekapaug Inn – the sister property to Ocean House is equally as special and a little bit more casual! They also have a champagne shack on the property that does an incredible lunch over looking the pond!
Sift Bake Shop – best chocolate chip cookies in the area! Brownies are pretty bomb too
Ford’s Lobsters – okay so it’s not technically in RI, but it’s a 15 minute drive and it’s the best lobster rolls in the area. Worth it!
Oyster Club – We’re all heard of farm to table – but what about boat to table! This boat-to-table New England seafood spot is not to be missed.
St. Clair Annex – omg GO FOR THE ICE CREAM! They have food too – but their ice cream flavors are amazing.
Olympia Tea Room – if you’re in need of a Lobster Roll around Watch Hill and want to hop off the Ocean House property… this is your place!!
The Cooked Goose – super cute little cafe for breakfast right by the Ocean House! Ride your bikes over and park it for the morning!!
Matunuck Oyster Bar – we were able to sneak in a quick trip to Matunuck on our way out of town for lunch and grabbed a dozen oysters! Best oysters in the state!
