Why You Need To Skip Brunch This Sunday

There’s a better option.

What are you doing this Sunday? Are you planning to sleep in, then finally pull yourself out of bed a bit dehydrated from Saturday night’s misadventures to head to a place to load up on bacon and Bloody Marys while you wait for the Pats to play? Normally, that would be awesome, but this Sunday, November 16th, there’s another choice. One that will blow your sense of gustatory perception.

The Revolving Door is continuing their practice of shattering what culinary traditions are left in Newport with a Caribbean Island Tasting Tour and Wine Pairing. Key West has long been in the Caribbean’s sphere of Island cuisine and Chef Martin Liz bring’s his native city’s history and culture bear with four courses expertly paired with wine selections.

These sample dishes from his current menu at the Revolving Door.

Course One:

Lobster Chilao-a rich tomato based stew cooked with Cuban spices, beer, wine, and topped with fresh Maine Lobster

Course Two:

Cod Escovitch-Local poached Cod and Jamaican style pickled vegetables

Course Three:

The Main Event-Cuban Roast Pork and Ropa Vieja-slow cooked braised beef served with Cuban black beans and jasmine rice

Course Four:

Key Lime Pie and Rum Bathed Guava Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream

Sounds good, doesn’t it?

If this tickles your fancy, call The Revolving Door to make your reservations ASAP because seating is limited and this event will sell out.


The fun starts at noon and continues until 2pm (Have no fear football fans, the Pats don’t play until 8:30 that night). Tickets are $80.
