Located in the historic Vanderbilt Grace hotel in Newport, R.I., Muse by Jonathan Cartwright is the latest creation by world-renowned chef Jonathan Cartwright. (Chef Cartwright is also the executive chef at Vanderbilt Grace’s sister hotel, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star White Barn Inn in Kennebunkport, Maine.)
Muse is one of the premier Newport restaurants, and provides an excellent opportunity to explore one of the grand mansions this town is known for throughout New England. The mansion itself sits on Mary Street, not far from the waterfront and many of Newport’s attractions.
While the food alone is worth a visit, we can’t help but plug the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant’s ambiance. There’s something special about dining in a 100-year-old mansion once lived in by one of the wealthiest families in America — order a martini or a flute of champagne, take in your surroundings and toast to something spectacular.
