Gray's Ice Cream
Gray’s has been an institution in Tiverton, across the river from Newport, since 1923. Current owner Marilyn Dennis keeps frozen pudding—a rum-based concoction with fruit—on the menu for the old-timers and adds such newer hybrids as strawberry cheesecake.
Flavor to Try: Frozen pudding, a rum-based ice cream loaded with apricots and raisins, is a Gray’s tradition and not something even die-hard ice cream fanatics encounter every day.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
