EPISODE 9 – JAMESTOWN ISLAND

We explore the beautiful island of Jamestown in search of culinary treasures. Of which there are many!

Episode Overview
Nestled between Aquidneck Island and the west side of Narragansett Bay is historic Jamestown Island, home to a quaint, bustling downtown area, a thriving arts and cultural scene, and a fanatical sailing and boating community. While many travelers pass right through on their way to or from Newport and Middletown, savvy diners know that Jamestown is home to some of the best restaurants in the area. Our first stop is at Simpatico, Jamestown’s longtime favorite restaurant, where a diverse menu of colorful dishes are served in a delightful atmosphere of indoor and outdoor dining that feels like one part old wooden schooner, and one part treehouse. Next we’ll head across the street, where classically-trained Chef and Owner Matthew McCartney is creating world-class fish and seafood dishes that pair with their award-winning wine list. In addition to the elegant dining room, there is an outdoor patio area with a grill and pizza oven, and also an upstairs bar where you can catch a game and views of the bridge.
