Black Salt

Black Salt Review

Just beyond Georgetown in the residential neighborhood of Palisades, Black Salt is part fish market, part gossipy neighborhood hangout, part swanky restaurant. Fish offerings dominate, and vary from classics like oysters Rockefeller and fried Ipswich clams to more-offbeat fixings like Pacific butterfish with mango, swordfish with fava beans, and a butterscotch pot de crème for dessert. The place can get crowded and loud, and reservations are a must for weekends. Regulars consider a meal at the bar a good fallback—especially when the French toast is on hand during the out-of-this-world brunch.
