Laurenzo's Grille Della Sport is getting much closer to it's winter soft opening promised by Dominic Laurenzo when I spoke to him in August. The front facade looks fantastic (amazing when compared to the before photo) and the interior is nearly complete. There is still work being done on the rear parking lot, but the hiring process is in full swing. When finished, this upscale steak and burger house will seriously enhance the dining scene on Washington.
Salt is located adjacent to Pearl Bar in the 4000 Block of Washington. Chassidie Pommier, Director of Operations for both venues, says the crew is working hard and pushing for a mid-to-late December opening. Space limitations have scaled back plans for a kitchen so Salt will be a bar exclusively. Based on my impressions of The Pearl, Salt will be worth the wait.
