Located in the former Tom's Tavern space, the iconic Boulder burger joint and bar that occupied the corner at 1047 Pearl Street for fifty years, Salt is chef/owner Bradford Heap's "Johnny Local" bistro, a pasture-to-plate restaurant that utilizes the bounty from local purveyors. In his exhibition kitchen, Heap turns out flat breads, roasted vegetables and even pastas from a wood-fired oven, and fish, burgers, beef, pork and half chickens from a wood-burning rotisserie.
