The salty sea breeze beckons you to Saltwater Coastal Grill, a dining destination celebrating the bounty of the ocean. Located along the serene shoreline of Rosemont, Saltwater offers a journey through the flavors of the sea, from expertly shucked oysters to creative sushi rolls and wood-grilled fish.
A Commitment to Fresh, Sustainable Seafood
At Saltwater Coastal Grill, sustainability and seasonality guide the menu. The restaurant works closely with local fishermen and purveyors to source only the freshest catch and shellfish, keeping flavors at their peak. Fish is line caught or sustainably farmed to protect fragile ocean ecosystems.
The Saltwater team knows where each item on their menu comes from – trawlers off the Carolina coast or small oyster beds along the Chesapeake Bay. This traceability ensures quality and reduces environmental impact. Many uncommon or underappreciated species also make appearances, expanding diners’ palates while taking pressure off overfished populations.
Raw Bar: An Ocean Bounty
Saltwater’s expansive raw bar shimmers with just-shucked oysters from both coasts – salty Malpeques from Canada’s east, briny Kumamotos from the west. Littlenecks, mahogany clams, and jumbo shrimp cocktail round out the display of ocean riches.
Towering plates of the daily catch arrive garnished with mignonette, horseradish, and fiery cocktail sauce on request. Slurp oysters straight from their shells, or savor them baked or Rockefeller-style. Every preparation highlights their pure, fresh sea flavors.
Sushi World: Culinary Artistry
At Sushi World, Saltwater’s talented sushi chefs transform pristine seafood into edible art. Their creations range from nigiri and sashimi showcasing the catch of the day to specialty rolls bordering on the decadent.
Succulent ahi tuna, buttery salmon, and mild hamachi create classic combinations, served with real wasabi and housemade soy sauce. Signature rolls reveal creativity and expert knife skills – think fried soft shell crab or tempura shrimp atop rice, veggies, and seaweed.
Coastal Grill: The Best of Land and Sea
The aroma of seasoned oak welcomes you to the Coastal Grill, where hand cut steaks share space on the menu with sustainable catches cooked over the fire. Bask in smokehouse scents as you survey options like whole roasted fish, cedar plank salmon, or charred octopus skewers marinated in chimichurri sauce.
Prime aged beef emerges with a hearty char, topped with tangy chimichurri or classic béarnaise sauce. Lighter fish dishes satisfy with a subtle smoky flavor and a slight crunch from grilling. Salads and sides incorporate fresh greens and seafood touches like pancetta and shrimp.
A Tranquil Coastal Escape
Floor-to-ceiling windows fill Saltwater’s sunlit dining room with natural light and captivating sea views. Hues of sea glass and sand neutrally enhance the peaceful atmosphere. Outdoors, the sea breeze drifts through the patio and bar area, where guests can sip coastal cocktails like Dark & Stormys or Sea Breeze Sangria.
Late nights at Saltwater take on an ethereal tone, as flickering candles cast their glow across linen-draped tables. Gentle waves shimmer under the moonlight in the distance, setting the mood for lingering conversation over French press coffee and a dessert of crème brûlée or warm brownie skillet cake.
