Salt*Boulder, Colorado

I don’t usually do restaurant reviews, but since it’s now been over two weeks since dining at Salt Bistro in Boulder, Colorado, I can still taste the food while thinking on it!

My Food Journal Entry on Salt

This eve we dined at Salt, down in Boulder’s Pearl Street Mall. A native of NY and long-time local of Southern CA, I’ve been food-spoiled my entire life. Salt is my first dining-out culinary pleasure of 2011.

Our waiter, AJ was the bomb; good-humored, got along well with us and offered the most superb suggestions. Why superb? The description of the dishes exceeded the taste expectations. That doesn’t happen all too often!

Loved the eclectic, yet local and seasonal menu. Turnip soup, winter vegetable entree (carrot pudding, beet cake)… Farm raised beef from the Never-Never Ranch!

Impressed by the service so naturally offered by AJ, we were aptly entertained while slowly dining on our three-course meal. (somebody give AJ a raise; we’re asking for him again when we come back).

Imbibing? Try their super cool build your own spirits! With infused syrups
like lavender and almond, I couldn’t resist sucking down a thirst-quenching lavender Bombay collins (grown-up lavender lemonade).

Hungry? Me too! I’m definitely heading back down on my next visit to Boulder. Check out Salt’s blog, Life of a Saltine to stay tuned to their seasonal menu and do drop-in if you’re on the mall!
