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 shellfish 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 with accents of roasted asparagus and truffled onions, and the blackened mahi-mahi samples more tropical climates with coconut-jasmine rice and pineapple salsa. More than 120 international and domestic wines suggest endless pairings–from appetizers of fried calamari to desserts of housemade pie and seasonal crème brûlée. 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.

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. They never freeze their fresh selections, lending the food a more natural taste and a decided advantage at freeze tag. 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.

For the two years he lived in Alaska, Alan Pagano sold wild Alaskan salmon that he bought directly from fishing boats. This experience has led to a lifetime of cultivating relationships with top seafood suppliers, which he takes full advantage of at his fish market, Pagano's Seafood. From markets in New York, Massachusetts, and Florida, Alan and his team hand select each batch of wholesale seafood from around the world including red snapper from the Caribbean and naturally raised Scottish salmon. He also sells individual orders of jumbo shrimp, Pacific cod, and caviar. Each order is accompanied by complementary cooking instructions and, in the case of lobster, tips for cleaning, cooking, and cracking them, and then properly mourning their passing.
