When you spent too much money on a new shirt, and want to wear it somewhere that could be referred to as trendy, head to Saltyard. With a sleek interior that’s almost always crowded, it’s the perfect background for the picture you’ll inevitably take. But thankfully, Saltyard is way more than just a background; they serve plenty of unique small plates like sweet potato empanadas and sliders with bahn mi vegetables. Bring a group that’s down to share and order a large portion of the menu, and if you want to go big, order the 22oz strip for the table, just be careful not to stain the shirt.
