The hotel features its signature restaurant, The Vanderbilt Grill, a highly acclaimed restaurant where the best local ingredients are on offer in imaginative menus which change throughout the year. For more information or reservations, call The Vanderbilt at 1 (401) 846-6200, or visit aubergeresorts.com/vanderbilt.
