THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Sel de la Terre Restaurant Review

: L’Espalier owner Frank McClelland created a more casual sister restaurant with Sel de la Terre, which features a sleek Peter Niemitz-designed dining room. Dinner starts with a bread basket (think black olive and fig-anise from the on-site boulangerie) accompanied by the signature petit goûter---an eggplant-goat cheese purée with toasted black walnuts. The seasonal menu highlights subtle French influences over bold, Mediterranean-bright flavors with dishes like curry-scented steelhead trout, or roasted free-range chicken breast with chestnut ragoût. There are five- and seven-course tasting menus available if you prefer to have chef Geoff Gardner take you on your own Provençal journey. Wednesday nights, Gardner turns out a four-course tasting menu paired with globally sourced wines selected by wine director Erik Johnson. Looking for a late-night snack? Head over to the luxe bar for a nightcap, where the crowd enjoys a menu offering everything from grilled hanger steak frites to charred watermelon with Vermont chèvre.
