Best Bite in Town on the Food Network

Crafted from the mind of Guy Fieri, the King of Flavortown calls upon Noah Cappe and a few of his chef friends to help find the most delectable dishes in towns from coast to coast, airing every Friday at 9 pm on the Food Network.

For its 8th episode of the first season, Cappe, Chef Shota Nakajima, and Chef Tiffani Faison were tasked with tasting their way through Newport, Rhode Island.

“Once in town, they check out the culinary scene to see which restaurants have the best food,” said Food Network. “They’ll taste everything from chowder and noodles to burgers and biscuits in the hunt for what they think is the most amazing dish.”

So, What Is the Best Bite in Newport?

During the episode, the judges visited Mission, Giusto, Yagi Noodles, Flo’s Clam Shack, Stoneacre Brassiere, and Perro Salad to try two dishes at each spot.

Surprisingly, seafood didn't take the crown, but it turns out, Mission can whip up a mean breakfast.

The restaurant received $5,000 and another $5,000 to donate to their favorite charity,

They donated that $5,000 to Universal Promise, an education fund to achieve and sustain equity in South Africa.
