Rowayton Seafood Fish Market
The chefs at The Restaurant at Rowayton Seafood don't go far for their fruits de mer: usually, they just pop next door. Located directly adjacent to the restaurant that bears the same name, the Rowayton Seafood Fish Market occupies a former lobster shack that was reportedly once the oldest continually operating lobster co-op on Long Island Sound. Inside the market, fresh-cut fish filets from the sea are displayed alongside chilled trays of lobster, oysters, clams, and shrimp. As they shop, visitors are greeted with views of the water and the aromas of gourmet cuisine from next door, and educated staff members are available to answer any questions. An onsite deck allows patrons to chow down on eat-in fare and goods from the take-out market menu as weather permits, or they can post up at the counter in the market. Platters may be purchased for events, holidays, and special occasions.
