Honeymoon in Newport

BTW every decent restaurant requires reservations even midweek.

Honeymoon in Newport

I am a local foodie connected to the scene from farmers to chefs. Recommendations:
Stoneacre Pantry on Lower Thames. Farm to table. Uber creative. Sustainable. Delicious. BYOB.
TSK always great. Their onion soup, a usual fall treat, is out of this world.
Bouchard's a constant delight. I eagerly await the opening of Albert and Sarah's next venture: revolving door.
Shells and Scales, great seafood.
If you see Monk Fish on any menu GET IT!
Drinks on the lawn at Castle Hill is always a treat. Dinner is good but not as good as Stoneacre or TSK and 5x the cost.
Pass on Spiced Pear and Moorings. Both have Sisco truck dropping off most of the food.
Congrats and enjoy!
The only lobster roll worth eating comes from Anthony's on Acquidneck Ave. It's a shame there is only one place in this town for a decent lobster roll.

Recommendations, Copenhagen and Champagne

Looking for restaurant suggestions in Copenhagen (besides for the obvious that are booked six months ahead of time). Also, we'll be spending a few days in the Champagne region...should we stay in Epernay or Reims? Restaurants? Houses?
Many thanks,
