It's a puzzle when trying to understand the buzz about a relatively new restaurant. Seasalt & Pepper is one of the hottest seats in MIA at the moment. The decor and vibe have a cool factor that's hard to beat right now. Beautiful people abound. I was really pleased and happy to be dining here from the initial entrance until seated at the table. The service was quite good especially seeing how hard our server was working attending us and his other stations. The food....meh. There were 6 of us. No one left the restaurant raving about the food. One in our party had to send his appetizer back (the roasted onion) as it was served frigidly cold in a little cast iron skillet. When it was brought back warm, it was undercooked. The sauce was reminiscent of Chef Boy Ardee. The fennel apple salad although sounding delicious was not eaten as it was too pickled. One friend ate one bite of her shrimp and determined that they weren't fresh and had a bad taste. She didn't bother to send back. 2 of us had the baby clams which we enjoyed. The broth was very tasty, however when we asked for bread to dunk into the broth we were brought the same naan that was served when we sat down. That just didn't work for us. All in all, the consensus was that the food was sub par for a restaurant with so much hype and so much potential. I will give them a few more months and try again. But, all in all was very disappointed.
