Tavern Noodle

Tavern Noodle
The Tavern is another new space being renovated by all star team Vic Christopher and Heather LeVine of Lucas Confectionary and The Grocery fame. They’re making a ton of progress, and while it’s not quite finished yet, they opened the doors during this weekend’s Victorian Stroll to offer something I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time: a pop up ramen shop they called Tavern Noodle. Let’s take a look.

Troyster Tuesday

Hailing from Ninigret Pond, Charlestown, Rhode Island, these East Beach Blondes are making their debut at the Confectionery.

Ninigret Pond is isolated by a barrier beach from Naragansett Bay. In this peaceful lagoon, three oyster farmers happily co-exist and work together to produce bivalve gems. The camaraderie between Jim Arnoux, Nick Papa and Rob Krause means more opportunities to benefit from each other’s expertise.

Their understated saltiness finishes with a touch of sweetness.
