A new place for seafood

Penny White, a restaurateur for over 25 years, points out that seafood restaurants can either be super expensive or extremely cheap, leaving little for people who want something in the middle. That is why she opened Saltwater Eatery – a moderately-priced seafood option in Troy. The cozy beach house ambience is clean and crisp, featuring light blues with wood accents. There is seating for 80 customers inside and an outdoor patio that accommodates 20. The crowd-pleasing lobster rolls are prepared two ways – Maine-style on a grilled roll with warm drawn butter or Connecticut-style with house mayo, celery, and scallions. Other favorites on the menu include: Cajun shrimp & grits with creamy cheese curds, bacon and étouffée sauce, topped with Cajun blackened fresh shrimp; whole fresh flounder, battered and fried with apricot glaze over red beans and rice; and seafood pasta carbonara with shrimp, fish, lobster and crab, sauce of pancetta, garlic, pecorino cheese, eggs and cream over tagliatelle pasta. Options for non-seafood lovers include steak frites with hanger steak, zip sauce and hand cut fries; chicken andouille pappardelle with seared andouille sausage, light Cajun cream sauce over pappardelle pasta; and hand-pattied burger with Detroit Zip sauce. The restaurant is awaiting approval for its liquor license which should be in place soon. Upon approval, the restaurant will offer a full bar with wine, beer and cocktails. 3672 Rochester Road, Troy
