Places To Try: Saltyard

Ok, so this is a month late but better late than never, right? I'm very picky when it comes to restaurants for my birthday, so I had been searching all week looking for the perfect place to celebrate with my mom and cousin. We usually split plates when we go out to eat (love having a little bit of everything), so when I saw that Saltyard had a small plates concept, I knew it would be perfect. The decor and layout of this place on it's own was amazing. They have an open kitchen, tall ceilings, and rustic with a touch of industrial decor. We were first greeted by the waitress who was very nice and knew her menu exceptionally well. First things first, we ordered a bottle of SeaGlass Pinot Noir (only $36) that was light and delicious to hold us over until we decided what to order. We finally decided to start off with the roasted red pepper bruschetta and fried okra. Both were equally amazing. Then we ordered pimento cheese beef sliders, braised pork shoulder, and grilled octopus. My favorite was the pimento cheese beef slider. The mixture of the beef and pimento cheese on the slider bread was a delicious combination. You can't go wrong with anything involving pimento cheese. I also loved the braised pork shoulder. It was juicy and amazing. The grilled octopus was good, more like a salad though, but the other two blew it out of the water. Since it was my birthday, they also surprised our table with champagne, such a sweet surprise (plus, it was very tasty)! And for desert, the waitress brought me some vanilla bean ice cream with a strawberry glaze. This was the perfect end to the meal. If anyone needs a good dinner place with an intimate atmosphere, this is your place. I will definitely be going back again sometime in the future to try more of their delicious menu items!
