Dining Out: Tantalizing tapas at Salud Restaurant
Pan-Latin food is in the spotlight at one of Bay Ridge’s newest eateries.
Salud Restaurant, which had its soft opening on Third Avenue late last year, features impeccably prepared cuisine that merges Spanish and Latin-American cuisines, with many dishes served as small plates via the popular Iberia tradition of tapas.
The style – which Managing Partner Jose Rodriguez says reflects Spanish, South American and Caribbean influences — easily allows diners to enjoy tastes of several items on the cozy eatery’s menu, sharing a variety of offerings with the other people at their table, a mode of service picked up from the restaurant’s previous incarnation (which closed after Superstorm Sandy) in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport.
The move to Bay Ridge provided the owners of the restaurant with an opportunity to give the menu what Rodriguez called “a facelift,” while still retaining the best and most popular items on Salud’s bill of fare.
