Rosemont’s Parkway Bank Park entertainment district (5501 Park Place, Rosemont) will expand its dining offerings with the opening of Saltwater Coastal Grill opening this spring. The new restaurant will bring coastal-style cuisine from around the world to Rosemont in a cheerful nautical space. Located at 5509 Park Place, Saltwater Coastal will feature a fusion of global-inspired, land and seaside fare including a dynamic Raw and Omakase Bar with a Mediterranean flair for a truly “fin-tastic” experience.
Saltwater Coastal is a production by Lyons Group Entertainment, a Boston-based hospitality company that also operates KINGS Dining & Entertainment. From freshly shucked Island Creek Oysters to an extensive selection of sushi and maki rolls, and daily grilled fish options, Saltwater Coastal will use the freshest ingredients to transport visitors to the sea, no travel required.
“The Village of Rosemont is thrilled to welcome Saltwater Coastal Grill to our entertainment district’s impressive lineup of dining offerings,” said Rosemont Mayor Brad Stephens. “The restaurant’s fresh seafood and sushi offerings will further establish Rosemont as one of the top dining destinations in the area.”
The restaurant will be home to a custom-built “Fish Room” walk-in cooler specially designed for the cutting and preparation of the finest seafood available. Maintaining a constant temperature of 35 degrees, the optimal environment preserves the texture, flavor, and freshness of their seafood, allowing Chef Cruz Goler and his team of talented chefs to create the highest quality seafood dishes.
Start the evening with Mediterranean-style plates bursting with fresh flavors and vibrant colors. Menu highlights include Crispy Haloumi Cheese with Aleppo-roasted carrots, olive oil and naan, Whole Roasted Beets with tabbouleh salad and horseradish cream, and Whole Grilled Mediterranean Orata with spinach, green olives, fine herbs and charred lemons. Saltwater Coastal celebrates offerings from the sea and that starts with the Raw Bar – Fresh East Coast Oyster Selection, New England Cold Water Half Lobster with saffron aioli, Wild King Crab Legs with pimento mayo, and Seafood Towers. Tinned fish offerings include over twenty different imported options such as sardines, anchovies, tuna, salmon and more.
Sushi classics and Omakase Bar will be executed by Master Sushi Chef Ichiro Hu featuring a selection of highest quality toro, shrimp, salmon, and a variety of fresh sashimi and sushi rolls. A few highlights include Pepper Tuna Tataki – pan-seared tuna with mixed greens and ponzu sauce, Summer Shack Roll – lobster, mango and seared scallop with special sauce and Sushi Sandwich – spicy salmon, spicy tuna and avocado on rice cracker with soy paper.
A full beverage program has been expertly curated by Lyons Group Mixologist Al Brown. Its robust cocktail program will feature classic cocktails, sangrias, tiki drinks, and more. Saltwater Coastal will also feature a popularly priced wine menu and a wide selection of draft and bottled beers.
Upon entering Saltwater Coastal, guests will be greeted with an environment reminiscent of shoreside dining spots in Santorini or Veracruz. Just in time for summer, Saltwater Coastal will offer guests al fresco dining on an 80-seat patio complete with ambient lighting and soothing music.
Saltwater Coastal will be open seven days a week from 4 to11 p.m. For reservations, visit www.saltwaterrosemont.com.
