Interesting lunch at Sea Salt [Berkeley]

Glencora | Jun 28, 2012 09:09 AM

Some new specials have been added to the lunch menu at Sea Salt since I last ate there a few months ago.

My friend had one of them -- the rock cod lavash wrap with grilled zucchini, onions and hummus -- and really enjoyed it. The other specials are a spicy lamb pita sandwich and a fish sausage. Has anyone tried the sausage? Sounds like something that could be good or not, depending.

I had the fish sliders. They were fine, juicy, nothing too special, and came with a pile of lightly dressed baby arugula and house made potato chips.

The highlight of the meal was the Laura Chenel goat cheese parfait we had to start: a lovely stack of sweet pink and purple beets alternating with the tangy cheese and drizzled with a citrus vinaigrette. A sprinkle of small walnut pieces added crunch. It was really tasty and a bit fancier than Sea Salt's usual offerings.

They still have the bacon lettuce and trout sandwich, fish and chips and other standards. My other friend had the fried oyster po'boy and liked it.

I believe a new addition is the choice of a slider with a cup of chowder or salad for 9.5. That seems like a good choice for another time.

I'm so glad I talked my party into skipping T-Rex and heading over here, despite the more difficult parking. T-Rex's menu looked boring and limited by comparison.

Service was great, not too surprising since we were the only people there until halfway through the meal. The outdoor area is a bit windy, but pleasant.
