Beachside Dining at Ocean Rose Inn
Sea Craft – a sophisticated yet casual dining experience overlooking the water, featuring a modern, crafted edge to sea fare for guests and locals alike – is now open. The Sea Craft kitchen is led by Chef Willis Stepp, formerly the Executive Chef at Italian eatery Centro Restaurant and Lounge in Providence.
While Narragansett is already famed for its impressive array of seafood dining establishments, Sea Craft will feature an expansive raw bar, lunch and dinner menu concept that pays respect to the provenance of New England cuisine but with a unique spin on classic seafood dishes that will bring something new to the Narragansett dining scene. Menu highlights at Sea Craft include an elevated take on a lobster roll, locally caught catch-of-the-day, creative ceviche and crudo plates, as well as a unique, crafted approach to traditional beach cocktails.
Sea Craft is open Wednesday through Sunday starting at 4pm into the night. In addition to the warm and welcoming interiors of the restaurant, the spaces include outdoor front lawn seating options with fire pits for cooler days and nights. We look forward to expanding to serve lunch and a vibrant outdoor brunch on the weekends. Our perch overlooking the sea will be the perfect spot to also host private dining for up to 12 guests. The restaurant will soon offer in-house hotel guests a special "Beach Faire" continental breakfast as well as takeout service.
The restaurant space was designed by local, award-winning interior designer Libby Slader, whose previous work includes freestyle Italian eatery Giusto in the new Hammett's Wharf Hotel in Newport and popular seafood institution George's of Galilee in Narragansett, among others. Slader's vision for Sea Craft’s design concept is a beachy yet sophisticated design tapping into the best of classic, iconic beach destinations including Palm Beach, the Hamptons and of course the nearby coastal scene of Narragansett, Newport and other New England waterfront icons. With dark woods, golden accents and refreshing added pops of color, the design will feel fresh and coastal for warm summer days, as well as a cozy respite for colder months.
