Salts Restaurant Review

: While a dinner-party vibe suffuses this tiny, handsome space tucked between Kendall and Central Squares, the menu is almost formal in its refinement and precision. The French onion soup is made heartier with the addition of Berkshire pork, Gruyère ravioli and sourdough croutons; classic tours de force like the Painted Hills beef rib-eye, done to a turn, meet their modern match in accompaniments like bone marrow custard. Call in advance if your heart is set on the signature duck for two; the much coveted item has limited availability. For dessert, we recommend the lemon soufflé tart served with a side of green tea ice cream or the "inside out" carrot cake made with caramel poached pineapple and a scoop of pineapple buttermilk sorbet. A five-course chef's tasting menu is also available to be paired with a nice selection of wines.
