Salty

Girls night out. Fantastic idea! What’s even better…girls night out at Salt of the Earth.
What’s not to love about this place? They offer a rotating seasonal menu with local fare, fantastic veg options that omnis will also love, unique cocktails, and oh yeah, AMAZING food. The worst part is probably the wait you’ll have to endure on a Friday or Saturday night. Just go on a Tuesday, like I did!
You’ll dine with other eager eaters at elegant, cafeteria style tables, while cooing over culinary combinations beyond your wildest dreams. Exhibits A, B, C and D:

Smooth. Boyd & Blair, Creme Yvette, rose, elderflower

Lettuce wraps with tofu, sheep’s yogurt, pickled ramp, lemon

Seitan baguette with mushroom pate, pickle, cilantro, jalapeno

White chocolate, lavender, honey, argan, pistachio
 
And my life is complete. SO ready to go back. Who’s taking me? 🙂
 
P.S. Chef and owner, Kevin Sousa, is currently gracing the cover of Pittsburgh Magazine. Yep, he’s amazing.
P.P.S. OK, the real worst post about dining at Salt is the crick in your neck you might get from reading the giant menu board. Eh, you’ll get over it. Just pull up the menu on your smart phone (they even write the link on the board!)
🙂

    quick question – i know a waiter there, and he told me not to go because there’s nothing vegan on the menu. is that the case? feel free to email me if you wish 🙂 i’ve heard amazing things about this place but can’t stand restaurants with no vegan options.

      My seitan baguette was naturally vegan, but it is hard because they have very few menu items that rotate every so often. I’m sure if you called ahead they would be happy to accommodate you and come up with an awesome vegan creation!
