irene late april 038

The Seafood Grill is a new restaurant that has come to Armonk, NY.   The eatery features fresh seafood with a Japanese influence in some of the dishes.  Their slogan is “Dock to Dish” and we can verify that the seafood is both fresh and delicious.  There are also menu items for the member of your dining party who wishes to order a dish other than seafood.

The restaurant is right on Main Street and features two levels, the first floor with the dining room, spacious bar, and raw bar. The upstairs which houses the large airy space which is great for events or private parties.    There is an outdoor patio which was not open on our visit, but will be as warm weather arrives.   The interior follows the theme of the sea with soft blue walls, white trim and decorations made from seashells which give the interior a soothing , beachy, seaside feel.   A nice contrast is the tablecloths on the tables which is an item that is being left out of many newly opened restaurants.  The overall feel is casual, but elegant.

We started with the Colossal Shrimp from the raw bar.  These shrimp were the largest shrimp I have ever had, and were delicious.   The raw bar also features East and West Coast Oysters, clams, and King Crab legs.

The Jumbo Lump Crab Cake was next  and was served with a kewpie (Japanese mayo) remoulade.   The crab cake was all fresh crab meat, no filler or bread crumbs inside.  This appetizer was filling on its own and would be perfect to share as well.   I can say I have never enjoyed a crab cake as good as this one.

An interesting appetizer is the Maine Lobster and Buratta Salad served with cherry tomato and basil.  Normally seafood and cheese is not something I would order, but this dish was outstanding.  Fresh lobster meat including a claw, over a soft serving of buratta cheese with basil seeds, olive oil and cherry tomato.  This  proved to be a great comfort food and a dish I would order again.

On special that evening and not on menu was the Clam Casino served with double smoked bacon, and roasted peppers was a nice spicy dish and perfect for those who desire their shell fish cooked.

Our entree was the Pan Seared Salmon served over a cauliflower fried rice with a ginger, saki mirin, glaze made for a healthy and delectable choice.  The Japanese influence again is seen in this dish and it adds just a little something special to what would be an ordinary average salmon dish.

Desserts:  we sampled two desserts.  One was not on the menu on the day we were there and was unique and tasty.  It was Peanut Butter and Jelly Wontons, served with vanilla gelato.  A creative dessert.   The other was the Apple Blossom, a pasty with apple and served with vanilla ice cream and cinnamon.  A nice way to conclude our meal.

The Seafood Grill is a great way to escape to a seaside restaurant without needing to drive to the ocean.  Fresh seafood , relaxed atmosphere, and good service make this eatery a winner.
