For the Register Citizen By Jack Sheedy
TORRINGTON – December is a month of giving, and Litchfield’s Saltwater Grille is giving diners a chance to help them give to Torrington’s noted dance academy, Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory.
Make a reservation to dine at Saltwater Grille during December, Fridays and Saturdays lunch only, and the restaurant will donate 10 percent of your check to support Nutmeg’s programs.
Owners Andy Stowers and Brook Noel Stowers inaugurated the Charity of the Month program in February to give back to the community that supports them.
The Litchfield and East Litchfield volunteer fire departments and the Warner Theatre are among past participants in the program.
The Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory was founded as a small dance studio in Torrington in 1969 by Sharon E. Dante and has grown to become an internationally renowned academy of dance with students from all parts of the United States and other countries.
The conservatory’s mission is to provide professional-level training, education and performance experience in classical ballet and other dance forms for young students dedicated to the art of dance.
The Saltwater Grille was founded in 2007. The Stowers have owned it since 2013. It is known for a diverse menu featuring fine seafood, a raw bar, and a coveted location in the historic district of iconic Litchfield.
To participate, call the Saltwater Grille at 860-567-4900 and make a reservation for any day during the month of December and mention the Nutmeg Ballet Conservatory. The Saltwater Grille is located at 26 Commons Drive in Litchfield.
