Eat Steaks @ Sedona Taphouse, Raise $$$ for Norwalk Seaport Association

24 Aug

Okay, we know that we don’t probably have to go anywhere past the title of this post because, well, steak. There’s steak involved. It’s steak. Actually, to be more precise, it’s Sedona Taphouse‘s Black Angus Flat Iron Steak. They’ll be serving those bad boys up for just $10 during lunch and dinner every single Monday starting today until 9/21. Half of that $10 is going right to the Norwalk Seaport Association who provides countless educational opportunities and helps to preserve the Sheffield Island Lighthouse. This, folks, is what they are calling “Steak Out for Charity” and we hope you can get there.

As if the steak deal wasn’t enticing enough, Sedona Taphouse (recently opened in the Waypointe development in Norwalk) has beer. Lots of freaking beer. Like 50 on tap and 350 by the bottle lot. Also, if you come by for their Happier Hour from 3:30-6:30, you can get all drafts, wine by the glass, cocktails, flatbreads, sliders, and tacos for just $5.

We haven’t been yet, but this is a pretty enticing offer to get us in the doors. Hopefully you can stop by and check out this great event to help a local organization that does so much good.

To Do: Thursday Clambakes on Sheffield Island and Cruise Around Long Island Sound

24 Jun

There are probably not many things that are more New Englandy than clambakes. So, lets just concede and agree with us for the sake of this post. Deal? Deal.

And, if you want a clambake why not do it right? That’s what the Norwalk Seaport Association has planned again this summer. Leaving at 6 pm from the Sheffield Island Lighthouse dock on the corner of North Water and Washington, the C.J. Toth catamaran will take you for a cruise around the sound then let you off for a killer dinner on Sheffield Island, overlooking the lighthouse. While you’re there, you’ll also have a tour of the 145 year old Sheffield Island Lighthouse!

Cruising the Sound and Noming the Night Away – Norwalk, CT

20 Jul

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.

Choice of entrée:

NY Strip Steak-12 oz NY Strip Steak grilled, served with garlic mashed and grilled veggies of the day

Penne ala Vodka

Asian Salmon-Asian style pan seared salmon fillet served with soba noodles, glazed ginger carrots, fried spinach, roasted peppers, and a mango ginger wasabi drizzle.

Chicken Marsala-Chicken breast cooked in marsala wine with mushrooms and served with linguini.

Coffee and dessert:  

Belgian Chocolate Mousse Cake

New York Cheesecake

Creme Brûlée Cheesecake

Spumoni Tartufo-Strawberry, pistachio, and chocolate gelato coated in chocolate.

Happy Noming!
