Taste of Newport held at Gateway Center

Foodies Flock to Culinary Festival Highlighting Local Restaurants and ProductsNEWPORT  - The fourth annual Taste of Newport, sponsored by Community National Bank and organized by the Newport City Renaissance Corporation, took place on Wednesday evening at the Gateway Center.  The event was well attended with about 150 tickets sold.  Though the culinary festival, featuring signature dishes from Newport chefs, took place a little differently from years past in that all the vendors were under one roof, the quality of the fare did not suffer.  The only minor complaint from attendees was that there weren’t really any sweet dessert offerings on the menu.  For the rest of the story see Friday's Express
