We celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary with dinner at Fresh Salt in May. The menu has something for everyone, and the food is outstanding. Our favorite is the drink menu - specifically the Hot Karma Margarita. If you like heat, this one's for you!

Fresh fish, good pasta, professional and accommodating service, terrific drinks and a good wine list, and a beautiful view of the mouth of the Connecticut River make for a wonderful meal. Fresh Salt is on the expensive side, but it is very, very good.More

Description
Named Best Waterfront Dining and Best Seafood by Connecticut Magazine in 2016, Fresh Salt serves seasonal and locally inspired meals. Our tables overlook the waters of the Connecticut River where the fresh river meets the salt of the Long Island Sound. It's a treasured and historic spot with a natural environment that is rich in life. Fresh Salt restaurant reflects that lively diversity: We have a raw bar, a seasonally varied menu, and offer as much as we can from the farms, brewers, cheese makers and other food enterprises that are springing up around our region. Fresh Salt delivers a dining experience that's comfortable and relaxed. Our staff is here to be of service to you, our kitchen stands ready with fresh ingredients, a deep wine cellar and carefully crafted fusions of foods and beverages that bring tastes together in delicious and new ways. We have tables by the fire, at the bar, and in season offer seating outdoors on the Fresh Salt Terrace. Awards include: - Best Brunch, Best Waterfront Dining, Best Seafood, and Best Hotel Dining from Connecticut Magazine, January 2016 - Named Upscale Restaurant of the Year by Connecticut Restaurant Association, December 2015
