We have pride in our New England roots, so it’s important to us to support sustainable farming and harvesting methods whenever possible. We ensure our own and our communities’ success by partnering with local farmers, fishmongers, purveyors and artisans who share our values and enthusiasm. Below are kind words from some of our community partners.
Farm Fresh Rhode Island & Market Mobile
At the heart of every Newport Restaurant Group kitchen you will find the handiwork of local farmers and fishermen. There you will find chefs who champion an ethic of fair and sustainable food as they craft fresh ingredients into incredible meals. Having partners with such vision, there with us from the start, has been key to our success and it's simply inspiring.
– Noah Fulmer, Executive Director, Farm Fresh Rhode Island
Trace and Trust
Trace and Trust started as a concept aimed at supporting fishermen differentiate the high quality product they were landing with pride and care in ports like Point Judith. Its tremendous success in helping to connect these fishermen with like-minded chefs and consumers depended on the vision, support and patience of many chefs, including those of the Newport Restaurant Group. As Trace and Trust expands beyond seafood into other food sources, the Newport Restaurant Group is providing us with a unique level of guidance, involvement and support. We very much value the relationship we have built with NRG over the past few years.
– Mike Clayton, Founder, Trace and Trust
In addition to Market Mobile and Trace and Trust, we have enduring and direct partnerships with many area farmers and purveyors. Below is a sampling; please visit our restaurants’ websites for detailed information on where each chef sources his ingredients.
