Serving Up: The Fifth Element’s “Raspberry Ice Martini”

The Fifth Element, 111 Broadway, Newport, R.I.

The Fifth Element is a “casual-hip” dining destination shared by locals, destination diners and tourists alike. The bar and grill won a 2014 Newport Life designation for best “Date Night/Martini/Nightspot,” while Chef Chris DePerro keeps the fare seasonal and fresh, which for summer includes spinach balls, fried oysters and sautéed crab cakes. The cocktail menu includes fresh fruits.
