Salt's Cure

The idea behind Salt’s Cure is a noble one: every meal is made from ingredients grown and raised in California, all of which are carefully butchered and crafted in-house. And it's not just a tagline here; it's a way of life for the young chef/owners. You can always count on a great burger, and there's almost always a good steak of some sort. Black kale, mashed potatoes, grilled corn...you almost expect to see an old red farm truck parked out front. It's best to get there early because the dish you really want will surely sell out before the night is over. Speaking of early—make sure to pay them a visit for brunch, where an order of their oatmeal griddle cakes will make everything right in the world.

My first time at Salt's Cure was in their former space. It was a small restaurant so the only way to get in was showing up right when they opened. Now that they have relocated, the new space is about quadruple the size. Both times I went, there was still a wait to be seated. And I can see why. Their perfect formula of house made, local, organic food just tastes great.


They prepare a finite amount of dishes for the day, and things get wiped off the daily chalk board menu as they are sold out, and actually at a fairly rapid pace.


Each time I ate there, it was for brunch. Two things that really satisfy are the oatmeal griddle cakes and the 2x2x2. The griddle cakes are like pancakes 2.0. They have a little bite and are thin enough to be caramelized and a bit crunchy on the edges. The 2x2x2 are 2 eggs, 2 strips of bacon, 2 sausage patties and a buttermilk biscuit with house made preserves. The best way to enjoy both dishes to the fullest is to order both and share it with someone. It will still be plenty of food. 


Another alternative is the off menu All Star (which your server will probably tell you about). The All Star is the 2x2x2 with a mini order of the oatmeal griddle cakes. This plate of breakfast cannot be beat. The thing to note is that the eggs only come 2 ways - sunny side up or scrambled. No substitutions. The griddle cakes in the mini form are a bit fluffier and thicker, though smaller in diameter. It is more "cakey" vs. having that more caramelized exterior. It's all a matter of personal taste. Either way, one cannot go wrong.
