The Great Expansion!


It's been five months since we've opened our doors; and believe it or not, we're getting ready to open a few more!  The construction in the space of the infamous Bill the Butcher is coming to a close!

Designer Georgia Leckie of Inspired Interiors and Costa Mavromatis of Custom Woodwork, have done their magic again and transformed the tainted, maroon, graveyard of a butchery, into a bright and inviting dining room complete with stylish fixtures and wood accents.  

The main dining room will seat 60 guests in addition to the current bar, with the option of a private dining room of up to 50.  Suitable for rehearsal dinners, business meetings, weddings and socials, Salt & Iron will house the only full service banquet room on Main Street!  The two spaces will be connected by an interior walkway, creating a "new" restaurant that will seat a total of 100 diners. This will also create additional space in our bar, which has been filled to capacity most evenings during Happy Hour!

Chef de Cuisine Alex Marek will be featuring seasonal rotating menus with an emphasis on our family style steak and seafood fare.  Wine & whiskey flights, beer tastings, and oyster shucking stations are among the many accompaniments to a unique experience.

Also, please join us in August for a month-long viewing of Wine Foil Artist Amelia Sherrit, in addition to our participation in "Third Thursday" Edmonds' Art Walk Aug. 20.

We hope to see you for the Grand Opening of our main dining room on Monday August 3! Thanks so much for your continued support.

-Tastefully Yours, Chef Shubert

  

 

    

Dreams come true!

I've never been an avid blogger, but it has come to my attention that I should probably become one.  Many of my life experiences are very well documented (in my head), but who's to say that someday, I won't lose it all to brain sucking aliens or vampire robots!?  I'm writing today to bring you up to speed on what's been happening with our THIRD food venture: Salt & Iron.  This is going to become a regular thing (I think) and you'll hear from many of my teammates in their own voices, on what's new and exciting in our world of restaurants!

I'm Shubert Ho, Executive Chef and part owner of Feedme Hospitality which operates Shooby Doo Catering, Bar Dojo and Salt & Iron (all in Edmonds, WA).  My business partner Andrew Leckie and I run the show, not without the unconditional support of our wives Mira Ho and Ciara Leckie.  

It has always been a dream of mine to own a restaurant.  It's been an even bigger dream to own a steakhouse.  I mean, what high school kid goes out of his way to call Thursday: "Steak Night"!? Just so that he can invite his friends over to have free amateur meals made mostly of seared meat and grilled onions.  If you would have asked me then what I thought I'd be doing in 15 years, I probably would have said "I'll be a computer engineer and I plan on working at Microsoft".  It didn't take much to snap me out of that dream; calculus got in the way..  So I took it upon my self in community college to choose a career path that I thought I would love.  Here I am today with Salt & Iron, our prized oyster and steakhouse brought together by the team of very passionate people.  I can't tell you how luckly I am to have amassed such talent, that share the same ideals as I do for being creative and just a little crazy at the same time.  

Our mission is simple.  Provide a quality dining experience in the heart of Downtown Edmonds that features two of my favorite things: Oysters and Steak!  

That's it for now.  Next up: updates on our expansion into the infamous Butcher space next door!
