~SEED + SALT~ is a new restaurant from owner Mo Clancy and executive chef Ariel Nadelberg (Al Di La in NYC) that’s scheduled to open in the Marina on Sunday November 30th. It’s all about healthy and plant-based eating, so this is the place to find vegan, gluten-free, and cane sugar-free foods that are still focused on flavor. They’ve also made sure nothing contains GMO products. The space (designed by G. Paoletti Design Lab) is small, with only 14 seats inside and benches outside, and the menu will be available for dine-in or takeout.
In addition to their afternoon menu, they will also be serving breakfast. Because of the unique quality of the menu, most items are made from scratch, including spreads, dips, “cheeses” made with nut milk, and a gluten-free seed and nut loaf. Clancy and Nadelberg have been collaborating on recipes and refining techniques for a year. They are also making gluten- and cane sugar-free pastries. For breakfast, check out a chickpea frittata or their housemade granola. In the afternoon, check out a beet burger, seasonal salads, and a “BLT” made with smoky eggplant in place of bacon. Hours are Mon-Sat 7am-8pm, Sun 10am-8pm. 2240 Chestnut St. at Avila, 415-872-9173.
