About Sal y Pimienta
The name Sal y Pimienta means "salt and pepper" in Spanish, but it takes more than just seasoning to produce the complex flavors of the restaurant's modern South American cuisine. Chefs scurry about the open kitchen, preparing Uruguay- and Argentina-inspired dishes using a wood-burning oven, organic produce, and grass-fed meats from farms in Uruguay and Texas. Specialties range from empanadas and milanesas—breaded filets of meat—to homemade stuffed pastas and salt-crusted branzino. The restaurant even sears specialty cuts of meat, including bison and wagyu beef. Diners can pair their meals with a selection of more than 30 wines by the glass; varietals hail from Argentina, Chile, Italy, and California.
