Description: Salt is little restaurant on a remote island. Our menu is small - maybe a half dozen starters and about that many main dishes. We make a real effort to source as locally as possible - we buy our lobsters, scallops and halibut directly from the fishermen; our beets and carrots are brought in the back door by our friend Don who grows them about a quarter mile away, and our oysters come from about 10 miles away. We cook simply so the main ingredients take center stage, and we play with world seasonings for interest and depth. Our roots are in the classics, not Brooklyn, and our restaurant and our soul is squarely in Vinalhaven.

SALT is Vinalhaven's newest restaurant, and its every detail is perfect. The night we were there over July 4th weekend, we started with homemade breadsticks and breads and imaginative cocktails, inhaled perfectly cooked poussins with homemade gnocchi (among other perfectly cooked accompaniments), ended with homemade maple lavender ice cream. Yes, homemade is the word. And understated elegance is the ambiance. Haven't had such an exquisite meal in ages. HIghly recommended for those who love food and those who love imaginative and accessible menus. The locally sourced produce was an extra benefit, too.
