If there is one thing that makes Port Washington stand out from the rest, it is the town’s amazing sunset and spectacular view of the water.  The new restaurant Riverfish on the Bay is the perfect place for Port residents to sit down and experience these features.  Riverfish, situated on Orchard Beach Boulevard, opened in the beginning of May.  To all those who love filling their Instagram newsfeeds with pictures of Port’s waterfront, Riverfish just might live up to your photocentric expectations.

“Business has been very good since our opening on May 1,” said owner Mr. Dennis Partiti.  “My inspirations for opening Riverfish On the Bay were my love for Port Washington and my love for the water, and I wanted to make it a place for families to relax and enjoy themselves in a casual atmosphere.”

Besides providing breathtaking views of the bay and boats, Riverfish on the Bay has a menu of seafood, homemade pizza, sandwiches, salads, burgers, and pasta.  One dish, Avocado La Mar, is a jumbo avocado cut in half, and stuffed with shrimp and chopped crabmeat.

“The food is delicious and the restaurant is in a beautiful location, right on the water, which makes the experience even better. And it was super convenient because right after my family and I got off our boat, we were able to go straight to Riverfish and enjoy the  amazing sunset!”  said junior Kara Haberman.

Riverfish, which caters to all types of events, including birthday parties, Bar Mitzvahs, business and family gatherings, is a relaxing, family-oriented restaurant with great table service.  The restaurant is open seven days a week, and is fitting for all ages, as they offer lunch, dinner, and outdoor seating.  Customers can log on to www.riverfishny.com, where they can view an extension of the menu as well as make reservations online.

“My friends and I had a really good dinner,” said sophomore Emma Feldman.  “At first, we took pictures on the water, since it is such a pretty location.  The restaurant itself has a nice menu with good food.”

Riverfish on the Bay has exemplified its ability to showcase the pride of the Port Washington community, waterside and with enjoyable food.
