Grow, harvest, serve is the motto of this seafood restaurant just ten minutes from Newport and owned by actual oysterman Perry Raso. This is the freshest fish that you can eat, all sourced from adjacent Potter Pond with its shellfish beds and accompanying organic farm—so close, you can see it from the restaurant. Owner Perry is at the forefront of sustainable aquaculture (he has his own Ted Talk on the subject) with a menu that features a combination of wild-caught and farm-raised to reflect it. Start with a sampling of oysters from the raw bar, dive into tuna tartar tacos and scallop ceviche, and finish with the lobster and Alaskan king crab. Aim to be seated just before sunset and enjoy the view.
