After six months of whisperings that oysters may be coming to Columbia City, the rumors are confirmed: Salted Sea plans to open at 4915 Rainier Avenue S (the new building in the old Angie's location) this May. A "modern American seafood restaurant and raw bar," the restaurant reports that they will feature "local seafood in a variety of preparations with an emphasis on simplicity and clean flavors" with influences from French and Vietnamese cuisines. And yes, oysters will be front and center.
The team is currently busy hiring cooks and stewards and isn't confirming who is at the helm yet, or what to expect more specifically in menu or décor. Stay tuned for updates stat.
