Description
Red Salt Room by David Burke creates a sublimely relaxed elegance for Chef Burke’s first foray of his pioneering New American cuisine on Long Island. The venue features rich herringbone wood flooring, whimsical Himalayan Sea Salt accents and fashionable milk glass chandeliers. The menu showcases the chef’s hallmark dishes, such as crackling pork shank and “angry” lobster, along with his unique approach to regional offerings, such as dry-aged Long Island duck, pretzel-crusted crab cake, and a plethora of playful seasonal creations.
