Restaurant week at SALT

There are still six more meals to take advantage of during Restaurant Week. Reservations at some places are getting scarce, but at SALT, you can grab seats at the bar on a first-come, first-serve basis to enjoy its three-course Restaurant Week menu ($30). The menu includes an appetizer platter of coppa and labneh (a strained, thick yogurt) that complements the sweet, rich maple chicken liver pate. Your entrée choices are root beer braised shortribs and pork belly with hamachi—I say go with the pork belly, which has a crisp skin and is topped with slices of buttery hamachi just barely cooked. It comes with crumbles of blue cheese and dabs of shishito jam and Meyer lemon curd for a sweet and sour touch. Finish off with a perfectly creamy Bourbon flan, slightly too sweet, but a satisfying end nevertheless.
