RiverFish succeeds Aquarelle 45 in Port Washington
RiverFish is the newest waterfront restaurant adjacent to the Brewer Capri Marina in Port Washington. It is set to open Thursday.
RiverFish succeeds the short-lived Aquarelle 45, a pricey Mediterranean and seafood grill. Earlier occupants at the address near Manorhaven Town Park have included Marino's on the Bay, DiMaggio's and Latitude.
New owner Dennis Pariti said RiverFish will focus on "casual American" cuisine. The menu will include hamburgers, sandwiches, pizzas, seafood and steaks. He said the price range would be $13 to $30.
That compares with a $44 grilled rib-eye steak and $42 grilled lamb chops at Aquarelle 45.
RiverFish will be open seven days, from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., Pariti said.
RiverFish, 45 Orchard Beach Blvd., Port Washington; 516-883-5600.
