Salt, a restaurant in Lakewood, has served delicacies including soft-shell crab, a pork chorizo bolognaise and white mushroom dumplings.
“Because we are a small plate restaurant, we don’t have any entrees, and people are usually getting two to three things apiece,” says Jill Vedaa, chef and co-owner. “We don’t have any TVs. We really want people to come in and enjoy the person they’re with and the food they’re eating and not be distracted.”
The establishment’s menu changes every 10 weeks, but Vedaa gave us the inside scoop on a few of Salt’s must-try staples:
Calamari: Dipped in flour and fried, the tender calamari are served over a house-made coconut glaze.
White bean puree: A clean and simple dish, the puree is topped with mashed olives, virgin olive oil and paprika. It’s served with blackberry bakery sourdough. “It’s something light, but it’s one of our larger portion things, so it can feed one or two people,” Vedaa says.
