You’ll spot the sign, but the restaurant may be hard to find. Approach what appears to be a building too small for a taco stand and open the brass-handled door. Rope lights illuminate the path down the wood-paneled stairs that lead to this subterranean seafood spot. With a skylight over the bar and small dining rooms that feel nautical yet old school plush, the Salt Cellar is an intimate venue that specializes in fresh fish and shellfish flown in from the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans. Menu highlights include halibut ceviche, Nantucket cape scallops, pan-fried lobster over cheesy bacon grits, and salmon Wellington. All are served by a knowledgeable and doting waitstaff.
