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).

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.
