Newport Plant-Based Restaurant Ranks on Yelp’s Best in U.S. List
The reviews are in and a new list of the Top 100 Places To Eat in the U.S. has been released by Yelp, with a Newport, Rhode Island, hot spot breaking in for the very first time.
I love lists like Yelp's Top 100 restaurants, because they are based on diners' actual reviews and not food critics or influencers. People who eat out love the food and experience they had so much that they have to go home and tell everyone else about how amazing it was.
That's the kind of restaurant I want to try.
Now New Englanders have four new places to try, because that's exactly how many restaurants out of all the New England states made the list. Kind of sad, really, but not too surprising.
We are hard to please around here and not too free with the compliments. Getting a rave review out of a New Englander is a big deal, if you ask me.
So that's why I'm now very interested in trying what Root on Broadway in Newport is serving.
People have been complimenting this plant-based restaurant that made No. 59 on Yelp's list for its incredible food and reasonable prices. Tourists especially rave about how they want to come back again and again.
Of course, eating vegan isn't for everyone, but the menu at Root does sound pretty intriguing.
The avocado toast is definitely a fan favorite, but the coconut bacon is what interests me.
Root specializes in super-healthy breakfasts and lunches, many in bowl form. But even if you just wanted a coffee or smoothie for walking around downtown Newport, they have got you there, too.
Making Yelp's Top 100 Places in Eat in the U.S. is no joke, so this certainly seems worth the visit next time you head to Newport.
Other New England eateries to make Yelp's list this year include:
No. 56 - Soul food restaurant Sandra's Next Generation in New Haven, Connecticut
No. 83 - YiaYia's Greek Kitchen in Torrington, Connecticut
No. 84 - Taqueria El Amigo in Waltham, Massachusetts
