- Salt's CureAug 06, 2013
A cool little restaurant-- 2 young chefs devoted to charcuterie, locally sourced products and putting out tremendous food with integrity. They do a great tongue Rueban; everything is wrapped around charcuterei. It’s small place with good food with tasty salads, cured meats with bagel chips. It definitely speaks to what I prefer to eat if I don’t want to eat fish. Salts cure is a refined version of Katz's deli and Canters.Recommended for:Foodies

This is LA calling, they want a cure for their hangover...the solution, none other then the "Cult" worthy crowd that gathers every weekend around 10:50am to get there foot in the door, as doors open @ 11. First come first served, so come First.
Food is hangover cure worthy, and worth it; so savory and yummy. I am even thinking about it now, which makes me think... I wanna go now! The menu is changing every week or so, but sausage is yum... and oatmeal pancakes is always a staple. As is this restaurant run by two brothers that are curing every now and then...)

Salt’s Cure is one of those restaurants that make you feel like you’re not in LA. Perhaps Brooklyn or Portland, but certainly not LA. No, they will not rush you – feel free to linger over your cinnamon-butter-drenched oatmeal griddlecakes – and no, you cannot have egg whites instead of regular eggs, or a salad instead of the sausage. If you’re on a diet, don’t bother showing up unless you’ll be satisfied with a cup of coffee. (Though to be fair, at least the coffee is amazing – it’s French-pressed, and you actually see them ground the bean in front of you). The decadent, freshly-baked cinnamon roll and the crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth biscuits are just like your mom used to make them, assuming your mom was a supremely talented chef. The 2 x 2 x 2, a plate which combines two eggs with two sausages and two slices of bacon, is also well worth the hearty dose of fat. But while the food is heavy, it feels clean and fresh. The chef-owners are purists committed to local farmers, natural ingredients, and simple presentation. If something can be made in-house, they’re making it — bread, crackers, pickles, smoked fish, sausage, bacon, etc. We can only imagine the time and effort that goes into all of this (we get impatient with the microwave), but it certainly pays off.
The one LA-esque flaw that Salt’s Cure possesses is a line. We showed up ten minutes before they open at 11am, which was perfect – there was a crowd waiting outside, but there was (just barely) room for everyone to sit. By 11:20 there was already a wait for tables. A wonderful thing about the service is how laid-back and unhurried they are, but when you’re struggling not to pass out from hunger while waiting for a table, you kind of wish they would stop being so nice.
Parking: You can park in the little lot in front of the nail salon across the street – the spots aren’t reserved for the salon, so go to town. Otherwise, park on the street.
