The restaurant inside NYLO (Warwick Location) is similar to a European electronica club at night and isn’t very kid friendly inside. Luckily, there’s a library in the hotel lobby with comfortable benches and pod swings that children love. The restaurant is happy to sit patrons uncomfortable with the atmosphere in the library or bring the food up to the hotel rooms.
The food has a local flair (they call it “regional comfort cuisine”) with dinner items like the fish and chips special with a sweet kick of cinnamon in the batter. The cilantro lime chicken sandwich with avocado cream and sprouts is simple yet delicious. It’s the fries that will keep patrons begging for more.
During the morning and afternoon hours, the restaurant turns into a very kid friendly brunch area. No continental breakfast, but plenty of menu items that are inexpensive and filling. The Belgium waffles with strawberries are just the right size for a full grown man, while the fruit cup is more than enough for a child. There’s a Maine lobster and goat cheese scramble that’s just as delicious as it sounds. The chef’s specialty (not on the menu) is French toast stuffed with hot capicola, balsamic vinegar marinated portabella mushrooms and spinach. Isn’t that to die for?
The best part of the restaurant is the décor designed by Stephane Dupoux of Budha Bar NYC fame. Marina inspired stools that look like pilings, acrylic tables filled with shells, blue vinyl floor, light fixtures that look like conch sells, and a bar curved like a wave all attribute to the New England feel. The décor is artsy and classy – posh and comfortable. There’s even a 3,000- square-foot mahogany terrace overhanging the Pawtuxet River. The decor translates well to show out of town guests the maritime history of Rhode Island and the surrounding region.
NYLO Warwick “The Loft” Restaurant offers an extensive to-go menu available 24 hours a day – ideal for in-room dining, breakfast on the run, or an outdoor picnic. The to-go option is desirable for familys with loud, active, or rambunctios children. Even if you have a perfect angel, dinner is better to-go.
Definately a place to bring the in-laws for Sunday brunch, but leave the kids at home if you’re local. If you have the kids on a trip, order room service!
