Salud Bar and Grill
Like any traditional Argentinian restaurant, the menu at Salud Bar and Grill focuses on beef. You might order some beef empanadas ($5.95) and fried plantains ($4.95) as an appetizer, or go for the three chimichurri sliders on tiny brioche buns ($11.95). The list of entrees also includes plenty of beef, from a classic bacon cheeseburger ($14.95) to marinated skirt steak served with grilled vegetables and yucca fries ($21.95). But of course, beef isn’t the only meat on the menu. Opt for the grilled center-cut pork chop for dinner ($18.95), order crispy chicharron ($9.95) as a snack or go vegetarian with the mango-kale salad ($11.95). Thirsty patrons will be happy to know that Salud also pours craft beer and microbrews, in addition to mimosas ($5 for a glass, $30 for a pitcher) and spicy Bloody Marys ($5) at brunch on Saturdays and Sundays.
Venue says: “It doesn't take much to make it a perfect Sunday Salud! Join us for Brunch on Saturday & Sunday's for delicious on our outside patio!”
