The Dining Room at Castle Hill - Newport, RI

*Please Note: Some of the following for The Dining Room at Castle Hill Inn are excerpts from original posts;  Eating My Way Through New England published in September 2017 and Revisiting New England and the Northeast published in September 2018. * Yet another Relais & Chateaux and Forbes Travel rated property, Rhode Island kept raising the bar.

In 1874 Marine Biologist Alexander Agassiz of Harvard University chose this particular elevated location to be protected from storms and tidal surges, hence the "hill" in the mansion's current name.   After World War
