As we make our way quickly towards the end of October, many restaurants (particularly among the waterfront) are preparing to call it a season and close during the off-season until next spring.

While a lot of the restaurants wait until after the Bowen’s Wharf Seafood Festival, some have already battened down the hatches.

The What’sUpNewp Crew has started to compile a list of when some of Newport’s beloved seasonal restaurants will close, check back often for updates.
