Rib & Rhein
86 William St., Bellevue
Shop owners Erin and Thomas Ribeiro emblazoned “anglo-indo-waspy” on their boutique walls, and they take this declaration of style to heart, bringing brands like Carven, Charlotte Olympia, and The Row to the city’s Yacht Club set. Beyond the selection—caftans for women and tweed jackets and bright polos for men—the additional perks like in-house tailoring, personal lookbooks, and wardrobe consultation bring the mantra home.
144 Bellevue Ave., Bellevue
Styled like an old-fashioned apothecary, this shop, with its all-natural, eco-friendly line of skincare products is anything but stodgy. Stock up on their handmade soaps and bath salts (great hostess gifts) and treat yourself to one of their transformative facials.
181 Bellevue Ave., Bellevue
Belly up to the circular bar at this soda fountain off Bellevue Ave for classic shakes (specifically, the “Awful Awful”), sundaes, and cones, all with flavors ranging from black raspberry to maple walnut and crazy vanilla (vanilla flavor, crazy colors). Newport Creamery began by delivering local milk to residents in the ’30s. They then opened a “milk bar” on Main Road, a little north, but we head to this location for a quick, sweet, pit stop in town.
