The restaurant will also use local produce and other products when available.

“We are going to try to do as much local sourcing as possible,” he said.

The name of the restaurant is inspired by the term “salt of the earth,” which speaks about the true character of people, Gillis said.

“If you surround yourself with good people and good food, that’s what it’s all about,” Gillis said. “And everything tastes better with a little bit of salt.”

But you won’t find salt shakers on the tables.

The chefs use a number of different salts in their cooking, Gillis explained — including on a jumbo buttercream cupcake with a touch of sea salt on top.

Gillis said response so far has been positive, noting that there was a 45-minute wait for a seat on opening night (Feb. 23). Salt opens its doors at 4 p.m.

“Most people who are walking here haven’t seen anything like this,” he said.
