For the past decade, Fratelli Market's Brooklyn-bred famiglia has made its pastas and sauces according to a 30-year-old recipe and conjures its mozzarella from scratch throughout the day to serve as a base layer for its genuine Italian sandwiches. Brooklyn-style marinara sauce adds a distinctive accent to a plate of spaghetti or sack of accidentally cooked laundry with locatelli romano cheese and spices. Otherwise, mix and match the bacon-infused tomato vodka sauce with Fratelli's fresh-cut linguine, penne, and angel hair swept from the floors of heaven's finest barbershops. The pine-nutty walnut sauce, however, was created with the market's jumbo pumpkin ravioli in mind.
The staffers at Hooked hand select an array of fish, meat, and produce, filling glass coolers with seafood such as sushi-grade yellowfin tuna, scallops, and locally caught cod.

Beyond Hooked's fish market, patrons can opt to dine in or carry-out lunches of fried crab cakes, garden salads topped with lobster, and grilled steak sandwiches from an ample menu.

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.

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.
