Seafood Restaurants in North Stamford


Select Local Merchants

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.

BJ Ryan's BANC House (BBQ and Crab) satiates cravings for both fresh coastal catches and savory wood-smoked meats that exude Southern charm. The slow-smoked pulled pork calls to taste buds from the plate where it sits slathered in homemade sauce and dry rub, and savory shrimp and grits blend dry rub and cheddar flavors. The talented chefs pay a special tribute to fresh crab, which can be added to any entree, steaming dishes such as the Banc crab cake, dungeness, Alaskan king, or blue crabs, which come dressed in homemade roasted-garlic sauce, ginger caramel, or inner-harbor spice. Not to be overshadowed by the succulent food, BJ Ryan's dark, varnished wood and black-lacquered furnishings effuse a low-key, yet carefully kept dining environment marked by old photos and broad chalkboards listing the day?s specials.

The Beach Burger’s chef, Marc Anthony Bynum, a champion on the Food Network’s Chopped, unites all-natural, grass-fed, Angus-beef patties with an array of inventive ingredients, including fresh seafood, homemade sauces, and local produce. The eatery’s beefy options run the gamut from the burger-purist-pleasing Classic burger, adorned with lettuce, tomato, red onion, and pickle ($5), to the spiciness of the Taco burger, topped with guacamole, pico de gallo, sour cream, and lettuce ($6.50). The Surf and Turf bridges the gap between land and sea, binding together Angus beef and fried oysters, then topping the combination with arugula, lemon-chive aioli, and optional hot sauce ($9). Meat-less options include the Falafel, a veggie burger served atop an open-faced pita with hummus, cucumber, tomato, and Greek yogurt ($7), which, like any burger, can be accompanied into your mouth by a side of homespun fries (additional $1.50 for making a meal a combo) or a hand-scooped milkshake such as the Sandy Beach—coffee ice cream, Oreos, and chocolate syrup ($5).
