Flavors enjoyed a warm, summer evening in Saltyard's bright and airy dining room, devouring several courses of small plates brought to us by our kind and knowledgeable server Adrian. Saltyard's menu contains a number of tapas-style plates with straight-forward and rich flavors that are perfectly portioned for sharing. Check out Flavors favorites below:


Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: A smooth blend of Jameson, Meletti Amaro, Lilet Blanc and Sweet Vermouth, this well balanced drink is a great way to start unwinding from your day! Rather a beer or a glass of wine? Saltyard has five draught beers and ten bottled beers as well as twenty choices for wines by the glass and seventy-five by the bottle; plenty to choose from!


Ceviche of the Day: Chilean Sea Bass with tomatoes, lime, sweet yellow peppers, and cilantro. Light and refreshing, it's a must have when visiting Saltyard during the summer!
Beet Carpaccio:
Red and yellow beets make a beautiful plate! Topped with a thinly sliced green apple and fennel salad, this bright salad is the perfect combination of sweet and tart, deliciously crisp and the curry vinaigrette adds a fabulous twist.
Fig Bruschetta:  Crispy bread spread with bleu cheese and topped with sliced figs and drizzled with honey, this is a tasty start to any meal.
Roasted Brussels Sprouts:  This dish is a small cast iron pan filled with perfectly roasted Brussels sprouts with lemon, anchovy and capers. If you're trying to eat more veggies, Saltyard makes it easy with this dish!
Corvina Sea Bass Tacos: One of Chef Leahy's specials of the day, these panko-crusted, deep fried tacos are intensely crunchy with bright, acidic flavors from the red cabbage slaw and intense umami flavors from the smoked chili tartar.
Sweet Potato and Smoked Pork Shoulder Fritter:  We were unable to resist this totally Southern Special made with smashed sweet potatoes and slow roasted smoked pork shoulder. The spicy pork shoulder combined with the sweetness of the potato created a well-balanced bite. To really get the full experience, dip these delicate fritters into Chef's sweet and sour Pappadew sauce: an intricate blend of Pappadews, dates, garlic, dried fig, sherry vinaigrette and brown sugar. Delicious!


Mixed Berry Parfait: Light, bright and rich meld together in this dessert with whole blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries with whipped mascarpone and Amaretti cookies. Saltyard gives you an extra long spoon to get that perfect bite of berry, mascarpone and cookie all together! A great way to end an evening of exquisitely crafted food!
