The Saltwater Coastal Grill is opening Spring 2023, and will offer the bounty of the sea in a nautical space bringing coastal-style cuisine from around the world to Rosemont. Located at Rosemont’s Parkway Bank Park Entertainment District, the restaurant will feature a fusion of global-inspired, land and seaside fare including a Raw and Omakase Bar with a Mediterranean flair.
Located just 25 minutes from downtown Chicago, Saltwater Coastal is a production by Lyons Group Entertainment, a Boston-based hospitality company. From freshly shucked Island Creek Oysters to a selection of sushi and maki rolls, and daily grilled fish options, Saltwater Coastal uses fresh ingredients to transport you to the sea.
To prepare the freshest seafood, their custom-built “Fish Room” is a walk-in cooler specially designed for the cutting and preparation of seafood. 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 chefs to create seafood dishes.
Start the evening with Mediterranean-style plates. A few 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 and salmon.
Sushi classics and Omakase Bar will be executed by Master Sushi Chef Ichiro Hu featuring a selection of 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 is curated by Lyons Group Mixologist Al Brown. The 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.
When the weather is fine, Saltwater Coastal will have 80 covered patio seats complete with fairy lights and music.
Saltwater Coastal is located at 5509 Park Place, Rosemont, IL. Hours of operation are 7 days a week from 4 to11 pm.
