Let me start by saying I live in Pittsburgh, and work in the service industry. My friends and I were looking for a new experience and I saw that Salt was rated #1 on TripAdvisor and I see why. They have upstairs private seating if you call ahead and make a reservation you may be able to get in, but we sat downstairs. The main level has a school like cafeteria style seating but with a modern Chelsea, NY feel to it. If you do not know what I mean by Chelsea, let's say Walnut St. There are no menus just a chalk board that tells you everything you need to know. I ventured out and tried the Octopus it was absolutely amazing. For dinner I had Duck - Parsnie Haluski, Pomegranate Apple Butter, Brussels, my brother had Hanger Steak - Broccoli Kimchi, Wild Rice Porridge, Ginger, and my other friend had Pork Loin- Farro, Cranberry (it comes with mushroom’s be she doesn’t like them) Everything was cooked to perfection a feast to fit for a king. For dessert I tried the Apple Crisp, which was hot apple with, granola and ice cream it was suburb. We will be back and I haven’t stop telling people about it. Excellent service, with Excellent food, and Décor .
