Recently we attended the Santa Brunch at Salty’s on Alki. What a wonderful morning it was! I am always amazed at the number of dishes that can be presented, in addition to the amount of food that needs to be produced in order to feed a full venue of people over several hours. With such a wide variety of offerings there is something for everyone – even the pickiest of eaters. And let me tell you, I have one of those so I truly appreciate the pasta bar! (I’m sure you other parents out there know what I’m talking about.)
When you go to Salty’s for brunch they start you off by bringing some fresh, warm, mini-donuts to your table. It such a nice welcoming way to start the experience, but I warn you, don’t get filled up on those – there’s plenty to enjoy. They have all your favorite breakfast items such as traditional eggs benedict (plus a crab benedict that does not scrimp on the crab!), thick-cut bacon, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, french toast, Belgian waffles, and so much more, as well as buffet favorites like chef carved ham and prime rib, fruit, roasted veggies, and smoked salmon. Then the seafood, ah the seafood. We are so spoiled here in the Northwest with our abundance of lovely seafood and Salty’s makes the most of it by serving every kind imaginable.
My younger son loves the mussels and clams.
And I think we all got our fill of the peel-and-eat shrimp and the crab legs.
But wait. There’s more. Did I mention all of the different Meet-the-Chef stations? There’s a pasta station, made-to-order omelets, and hand-made crepes. I loved the savory crepes filled with chicken and mushroom cream. There’s even a Bloody Mary Bar!
