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 offers a flavorful slice of Provence at The Natick Collection. Dinner starts with a bread basket (think black olive and fig-anise) 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 also five- and seven-course tasting menus available if you prefer to have chef Geoff Gardner take you on your own Provençal journey. Tuesday nights, Gardner offers a four-course tasting menu paired with globally sourced wines selected by wine director Erik Johnson. Looking for some Provençal tapas? Head over to the bar from 5 p.m.-10 p.m. for dishes like arancini, grilled olive tapenade crostini and chorizo with fig chutney.
