SALT opened in 2009 in the historic site of Tom’s Tavern. Local artists came together to reconstruct a beautiful building that remains a Boulder gem. Chef Bradford Heap and Designer Carol Vilate created SALT in true bistro style, a warm neighborhood restaurant. The menu reflects this mind-set: simple, elegant and savory. The philosophy of SALT is that flavor is paramount and the best food travels the shortest distance from farm to table. We source local organic produce from our own Soul Patch Farm in collaboration with David Asbury’s Full Circle Farm. We are a 99% GMO free kitchen. We proudly call our farmers our friends!

Our beef is pasture raised, humanely treated, fed grass or non GMO grain. Our fish is from non endangered, wild populations. Materials used to design SALT are 100% recycled and made by local artisans. Vilate used local resources to re-design almost everything in the restaurant. Its interior was cleverly constructed from recycled and reclaimed materials, much from the original building. The “chefs of the bar” offer a daring and fun selection from our “make your own cocktail element” program, launching SALT into a new age of being the architect of your own entertainment with seasonal ingredients. Additionally, wines are sourced intercontinentally, offering guests a refreshing array of choices, from classic profiles to avant garde selections.
