Located right on the water with outdoor seating, this seafood restaurant has one of the best views of a Stamford sunset, and easily reminds you why the area was originally a destination spot for wealthy later 19th and 20th century New Yorkers who spent their summers in Shippan houses by the shore. Its attractive location and closeness to many Stamford offices makes Saltwater Grille a popular lunch, dinner and cocktail venue, and a great place to throw a party. This two-story eatery, where the Rusty Scupper, Beacon, and Shore House thrived and died, has been reinvented by its newest owners and is designed with more style than most local restaurants can boast. In other words, Saltwater Grille is definitely the place to go if you’re looking for a scene, and is usually fairly crowded, though reservations are not necessary. It is welcoming to families, but generally appeals to a younger preppy-cool 20s and 30s crowd filled with both singles and couples.
Saltwater Grille is a young restaurant in the process of finding its niche, but nevertheless, it’s sure to be a big hit during the dog days of summer. Go for the view, the drinks, and the cool crowd, and forget what your mother told you – go straight for the breadbasket.
