Salvation Cafe Restaurant Review

: Amid today’s glut of pretenders and over-reachers, Newport's Salvation Café manages to maintain its eclecticism with genuine style. The aqua paint, mismatched artwork (both originals and prints) and lamps made from ’50s-era salon hairdryers make for a comically cozy vibe, enhanced by the open summer patio and warm Pagoda Room to the rear (upstairs, a loft dining room is more subtle and sophisticated). Fried calamari stands out from the pack with its imaginative toss of vinaigrette and wasabi aïoli. Pad thai is bargain-priced, and vegetarians will go for the tofu version. But Salvation also deftly delivers for carnivores with a short-rib burger and oxtail Bolognese.
