‘Dining Under Wraps’
Mission’s Chad Hoffer, front, and Coffee Grinder’s Jeff Gladchun were among the owners of 20 local eateries who picked up 50 portable heaters distributed by the Greater Newport Chamber of Commerce at Innovate Newport on Oct. 22. The program dovetails with the current efforts by local restaurants to adapt their spaces to changing temperatures, using gas heaters outside and reconfiguring spaces inside for COVID compliance.
During Newport Restaurant Week, Nov. 6 – 15, diners at more than 55 participating restaurants will not only enjoy fixed price deals, gift card promotions, and BOGO deals, but also complimentary silver warming blankets to keep toasty. The initiative, “Dining Under Wraps” is part of a partnership between Restaurant Week sponsor Discover Newport and Commerce Rhode Island, whose “Take it Outside” campaign is slated to continue through the end of the year.
