Better than a convenient neighborhood favorite this Blacksalt can be depended on for an excellent meal. Not just for seafood lovers. Market fresh fish and ample portions should satisfy the most demanding customers. Desserts are not a strong point Good wine list and well trained...More

Visting family in the DC area, we went for Brunch to BlackSalt. It was very nice. Food was good. I think Dinner is the better option. Make reservations well in advance. I can't wait to get back for dinner. Wonderful place.

Corporate casual. You don't need a jacket or tie but definitely no shorts and no t-shirts. Polo shirt and Dockers are fine
