Salt Yard

Friday, June 21, 2013

We had the opportunity to try Salt Yard on Sunday night...   A tapas style restaurant that has recently (like 3 weeks ago) opened in the Brookwood Hills neighborhood of town (right near Piedmont Hospital on Peachtree). The restaurant actually shares the same address as Watershed, with Watershed occupying the ground floor right corner side of the building at 1820 Peachtree and Salt Yard established in the left.

The owners of Salt Yard, husband & wife couple, Christian Favalli and Kristy Jones-Favalli, have deep rooted restaurant ties here in Atlanta....  Christian's family has owned and operated for over 30+ years the well regarded Buckhead restaurant La Grotta, and in 2000, Christian opened Meritage (which is now shuttered) in Bacchanalia's original location on Piedmont. Kristy has worked in the restaurant business (including La Grotta) for a number of years, and she was on hand Sunday night overseeing the "front of the house".

The interiors of Salt Yard have been designed by Square Feet Studio and layer a mix of a dark gray color palette with warm wood tones and rough metal finishes. When we stopped in, the restaurant had just received their liquor license so wine was limited to Cabernet or Sauvignon Blanc, but we asked if by chance there was a Chardonnay possibly hiding at the bar, and thankfully Kristy was able to accommodate us. We ordered a nice selection of dishes....  my photos below....
