Viriditas Beautiful Skin Therapies
1 Richmond Sq., Providence
The microcurrent treatments, LED light therapy, and oxygen and vitamin infusions here are all exceptional, but the team at this serene studio in a refurbished mill near the water is especially skilled at treating problem skin. The acne-focused therapies are part of an entire program, Providence Acne Clinic Services, devoted to enzyme peels and careful extractions. One goop staffer swears her flare-ups were significantly calmed after just a few visits.
Truffle and Wine Pairing with La Maison de Coco
Native Rhode Islander and local chocolatier Michelle DeLuca Verley has turned her passion for chocolate and wine into an experiential business. DeLuca Verley will guide parties of six or more, through a pairing of her homemade tea-infused truffles and the wines that compliment them. You can either host this event at your own home or at her gorgeous, custom-built barn. We love to keep La Maison de Coco in mind for when we have friends or family in town. Call ahead to book.
Newport Lobster Shack
150 Long Wharf, Newport Wharf
Lobster is a big deal in Newport. A group of life-long local fisherman built this shack as a type of co-op to sell their fresh catch directly to the public. The Lobster Shack is fully stocked with wild-caught crab, conch, and lobster, obviously. Feast on fresh catch cooked every way imaginable: lobster bites, bisque, cakes, and finally the best lobster roll to be found in Newport. If you’re craving a taste of Rhode Island from afar, you can have catch live shipped overnight to anywhere in the US, or why not try to recreate the Newport Lobster Shack experience at home and cook from their aptly named cookbook The Fisherman’s Table.
