1031 S. Rampart Blvd.
Status: Opens at 11 a.m.
Step inside Honey Salt, the Westside's newest restaurant, to discover just how Society Cafe's Kim Canteenwalla and his wife, über-restaurant maven Elizabeth Blau, entertain at home.
The entire restaurant at Rampart Commons has the feel of a home with green booths and mismatched chairs throughout. To the right of the entrance, bookcases showcase salt and pepper shakers as well as sundries for sale. To the right, a newly fashioned bar with a fun cocktail program that shows off the couple's taste in drinks.
The dining room decked out in mirrors and photos on the walls and an exhibition kitchen has a neighborhood feel.
On the menu, dishes the couple would feature at a dinner party focusing on family recipes and relationships they formed with farmers, fishermen and growers. Look for dishes such as a Big Eye tuna tartar with quinoa, a New England fish fry, curry chicken, scallops in a cauliflower puree and a mac and cheese side with a bite. Dishes such as a creamed spinach with yogurt have a light texture. Homemade ice creams, pumpkin cheesecake and a seven-layer cake with banana and chocolate make the menu. Joseph Zanelli, formerly at Lakeside at Wynn Las Vegas, heads the kitchen as executive chef.
Be sure to check out the bathrooms where baseball cards from Blau's childhood, room card keys and menus from the couple's travels decorate the walls.
Honey Salt plans to be open from for lunch and dinner with brunch planned on the weekends.
