The new owners of Salt retained the classy feel of its predecessor, Zephyr, but updated the menu and added a full bar. They serve upscale American and Mediterranean fare, including vegetarian options, and though the restaurant is a bit more expensive than most places in Juneau, the ambience and service make it worth the extra expense. About a block away, on Franklin Street, is Saffron, an Indian restaurant run by the same owners. Diners here sit either at low tables
on cushions or at regular tables, and meals are served on huge silver trays that include naan, dahl, rice, curry, and other tasty offerings.
