Newport, RI Restaurant Itinerary Recommendations

I'll second (or third) the recommendations for Scales. Stop at the ATM first, then enjoy perfectly prepared fish with a skewer of fresh vegetables. Add a glass of wine and enjoy a wonderful meal at a very reasonable cost.

Newport Ri... Pasta Beach?

Had lunch there yesterday. My friend and I each had a truly delicious sandwich (tonno/vegetariono). Watched lovely pasta dishes being devoured at neighboring tables. The table of three people next to us ordered the shellfish that comes with garlic bread...not only did they eat that AND some beautiful ravioli AND a spaghetti dish, they made a 2nd order of the shellfish disappear.

Someone recommended CCS to us. My son and I will follow your suggestions and, at the very least, investigate your suggestions. With five weeks to departure, the anticipation is building and everyone's suggestions are motivating me to exercise more now so that I can try as many of these delicacies as possible!
Many, many thanks for your time.

Two weeks in Benelux

Dear Hans,
We will be traveling by train. We are open to staying for dinner in any of the cities we visit for day trips, but would be just as happy to dine in our "base" cities of Amsterdam and Brussels.
Two full days in Amsterdam, then a day trip to Maastricht ending in Luxembourg.
A full day in Luxembourg (Wednesday, Market Day).
Three full days in Brussels - first night, Thursday, dinner reservation for Comme Chez Soi.
Day trips to Bruges and Ghent, staying in Brussels.
Return to Amsterdam for day trips to Antwerp, Haarlem,The Hague, Rotterdam, all while staying in Amsterdam.
We are (unfortunately) not beer drinkers, so we are primarily interested in local food specialties or personal favorites.
Many thanks,
Essbeth

Two serious foodies taking day trips in and around Amsterdam, Luxembourg, Brussels the first two weeks of June...what are the "must haves"...especially regional specialties??? Looking for reasonable prices with the occasional splurge.
