Salts Recommendations

stay_classy | Apr 24, 2009 08:14 AM

Hey everyone-- I just made a reservation for my first trip to Salts, and am looking to you all for a little advice. It's a quasi-celebration dinner (my bday, my parents first trip up here in a long time, first real dinner in 2 yrs with the boyfriend and parents...), and have been dying to try this place. I've been reading some good things about their tasting menu, but am wondering if this is definitely the way to go, or if more people would recommend going a la carte? Just how pricey is the tasting menu (I picked the place, but am sure my father is going to demand taking the bill, and I'm trying not to kill him too too much here...), does it include wine pairings, and is this duck really all it's cracked up to be? Within the group, we'll have both a chef and a gastronomy student, as well as a semi-picky eater, so I'm really looking for something that will be special for us who are food-centric (yeah, it's a stretch, but am really trying to not use the word foodie here...) but will also cater to a dislike or two with the picky eater. Any advice/recommendations? TIA!
