Our featured favorite thing of the week is the SALT Restaurant & Bar:

SALT Restaurant & Bar is located in the Marina Del Rey Hotel in Marina Del Rey, California and if you have a chance, you must visit at sunset and dine outdoors on the patio. The view is just breathtaking.

Fresh, seasonally inspired and locally sourced. This is Californian cuisine at SALT. A new favorite among Marina del Rey restaurants, SALT seeks to inspire guests with an innovative take on modern American cuisine. Each course presents a true feast for the senses. Recently voted OpenTable Diner’s Choice for Best Ambiance and Outdoor Dining on the Westside.

Food tastes best when it is prepared at the height of freshness. At SALT, seasonal ingredients are sourced from local farmer’s markets to create an incredible Marina del Rey dining experience. Our take on Californian cuisine explores simple favorites with a contemporary twist.

During my last visit to SALT, we sampled (well guzzled) a few of their signature cocktails. The SALT, which features Dobel Maestro Tequila, hibiscus, Averna, lime and a chili-salt rim. It was perfectly refreshing. We also tried the Rosemary Martini which was crafted with their own house-made rosemary vodka, fresh lime, muddled cucumber and fresh mint. So, so delicious.

Salt Restaurant Lobster Pasta

As for the food, you will not be disappointed. You must try the lobster pasta which featured chunks (not little bits) of fresh lobster. The 14-ounce pork chop was simply amazing. It featured roasted brussels sprouts, smoked bacon and a potato puree.

Dessert lovers will not be disappointed either. Chocolate addicts will be thrilled to dive into the Chocolate Pot Au Crème. Along with the creamy chocolate, it comes with brulé banana and whipped heavy cream. Other highlights on the dessert menu were the Meyer Lemon Tart and Make Your Own Smores.

All around, I highly recommend SALT Restaurant & Bar.
