New Spring Menu at Fresh Salt at Saybrook Point
One of my favorite things about Fresh Salt at Saybrook Point is that besides being a fine dining establishment, the atmosphere is always relaxed, casual, and fun. And needless to say, the food is ALWAYS amazing! I think it's because Chef de Cuisine Gese Rodriguez has a simple approach - take the best local seasonal ingredients from the area's local farms and fisheries - and turn them into into a beautifully inspired dish!
Fresh Salt's new Spring Menu does just that for both lunch and dinner!
If you're starting with lunch, choose from a selection of fresh spring salads including the Three Bean Salad with Butter Bean, Edamame Bean, Garbanzo Bean, Spring Lettuce, Pickled Red Onion, and Passion Fruit Vinaigrette ($13.95) or the Boston Lettuce-Trevisano Salad with Pickled Kumquat, Roasted Cherry Tomato Toasted Walnut, Goat Cheese, and Port Wine Vinaigrette ($13.95).
