SIZZIN SUMMER SPOTS: THE MOORING IN NEWPORT, R.I.

It's summer's last hurrah. Labor Day weekend is here, but before it's time for pumpkin-flavored everything, there's still time to soak in some last-minute summer. The Mooring Seafood Kitchen & Bar in Newport, Rhode Island is the perfect place for a fine meal this Labor Day weekend. Sure, you can eat inside, but if you can, get a table outside. You'll sit right by the water and be able to watch the boats comes and go.

The Mooring offers many wines, beers and cocktails. They have a Guinness float with Guinness Irish Stout and vanilla ice cream. Grab a drink, then order an app. I loved their light and refreshing watermelon salad. It's perfect for those warm summer nights. They'll split it on two plates for you if you're sharing. Another popular app is their "bag of doughnuts," their lobster, crab and shrimp fritters. 

Seafood dinner options are all fresh from the sea. They have traditional New England favorites like Atlantic salmon and Maine Lobster. I went for one of their sandwiches, the lobster croissant. It was jam packed with fresh, chilled lobster meat and served with a side of fries. Excellent. If you're not in the mood for seafood, The Mooring has many dishes for land lovers including pork tenderloin, ricotta gnocchi and chicken. They also have many gluten free and vegetarian options of the menu. Desserts include New York cheesecake with a raspberry sauces, carrot cake creme brulee and banana cake.
