Looking to spend a night out on the Sound over the summer and watching the sun set? Well, look no further. Every Friday this summer until August 31, there will be a Sunset Cruise brought to you by the Norwalk Seaport Association. You’ll leave at 6 pm from the Sheffield Island Dock (on the corner of Water and Washington) and you’ll get back at 8. You’ll then stroll over to the brand new Atlas Restaurant where you’ll be treated to a 3 course prix fixe menu. Although this spot at 19 North Water Street seems to be cursed by restaurants opening and closing there, their focus on seafood makes sense and the menu looks fun and creative. All of this costs just $47 per person or just the cruise for $20 each (buy here). Remember to tip your server, though! When you park, be sure to find a spot at the Maritime Garage. Bring your parking ticket to Atlas Restaurant and they’ll validate it for ya.
Here’s the prix fixe menu, right from the fish’s mouth:
A glass of wine
Caesar salad: romaine lettuce dressed with parmesan cheese, fresh lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, egg, garlic, black pepper, anchovies, and croutons.
