BlackSalt – Wednesday, 11 January 2012

BlackSalt, which is on the Washingtonian‘s “100 Very Best” list, was my second Winter Restaurant Week stop.  You enter the restaurant through a small market stocked with wonderful fresh fish.  The dining area is rather small, and, since BlackSalt is v popular,  the noise level can get a bit high.  Minimalist decor, and an exposed kitchen.

BlackSalt is in the Palisades neighborhood of Washington, at 4883 MacArthur Boulevard.

A few years ago, I made a resolution not to order calamari as an appetizer, for the simple reason that I was always ordering calamari as an appetizer.  Another resolution down the drain.  This was good.
