Saltwater.

DSC_0496I love to eat. I’m kind of a picky eater, I generally won’t try things that look squishy, slimy, or different.  So, you can imagine it took years for me to try an oyster and they’re actually pretty good. But Saltwater has this magical mixture made of shallots, garlic, champagne vinegar, and lemon juice that adds something special to the already tasty oyster. I wanted to do a mini-review of the restaurant that focuses more on the ambience than the food itself.

  1. As you are/were with food, I am too. Oysters fit into this ‘slimy squishy’ category for me. They’re also raw. I’m not sure I can stomach them…. But, the menu does look very appetising. I could be convinced otherwise 🙂
