  • The Restaurant at Rowayton Seafood
    The Restaurant at Rowayton Seafood values customer loyalty as much as the freshness of their seafood, and both have contributed to it's recent success. The seafood is about as local as it gets?the executive chef sources the eatery's lobster, clams, and mussels from the Rowayton Seafood Market right next door. This freshness is crafted into a seasonal menu, paired with the scent of salty coastal air, assails the senses in the sunlit, harbor-side dining room, where diners warm themselves by the fireplace or gaze out onto Five Mile River. The chef's inspired dishes, which won Connecticut magazine's 2013 award for best seafood, draw on American and international recipes. The grilled domestic swordfish keeps things simple paired with Farro grains and sundried tomato ragu accented with smoked paprika and basil oils. The sea scallops, drizzled with an applewood bacon vinaigrette, are presented over a sweet corn puree and paired with roasted beets and caramelized onions. More than 120 international and domestic wines suggest endless pairings?from appetizers of fried calamari to desserts of housemade pie and seasonal cr?me br?l?e. Free valet parking is available, and guests can also dock their boat at the restaurant by reservation. Combining their freshly caught fish with ecologically sound practices, the Restaurant has partnered with the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Seafood Watch Program to serve sustainable seafood and help protect the balance of marine life.
