THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES The Grill Restaurant Review

: THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED NAMES TO SALT. The Grill, The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island's signature restaurant, served as the catalyst for Jacksonville's restaurant boom. It opened in 1991, when Jacksonville boasted precious few fine dining establishments. With its world-pantry of exquisite ingredients, encyclopedic wine list and rarefied prices, it showed that northeast Florida residents and visitors had a taste for haute cuisine. Since then, dozens of high-end restaurants have opened in town, some of which have chefs who sharpened their skills in The Grill kitchen. Happily, age hasn't dulled The Grill's edge. It's still introducing locals to new dishes, new ingredients. Finely shaved organic beef carpaccio, heirloom tomatoes, artisanal cheeses and Tasmanian king salmon may all make appearances on the menu, along with specials featuring the best of area farms, fields and fishing boats. Plan to spend some time with The Grill wine list, which---among its 500 bottles---always includes some rare and intriguing vintages. And don't miss the warm mocha mousse with caramel crème anglaise.
