Rocksalt

Rocksalt has been on my "must try " list for the past year so when the opportunity to try it presented itself, I took it! We were a little full from dinner at Chopt but we easily found room for oysters and a wine pairing to cap off our evening.

The homemade hot sauce is out of this world!

But it didn't stop there. We were treated to a few new menu items that were scrumptious!! 

Until last night I was not a big fan of bone marrow. But this? This bone marrow was like butter. And the pickled raisins were the perfect topping.

Bone Marrow I Pickled raisins, fresno, dukkah, and grilled bread.

Up next was Tuna Tartar. A favorite of mine no matter where I go but this one was so good I almost licked the plate clean. Pretty sure my fellow food bloggers would not have judged me.

I have never seen Toad in the Hole on the menu but Rocksalt has changed that. Talk about elevating something so simple to something so delicious! I love smoked fish so I was excited to find it on the dish, along with roe.

The Charred Spring Onions plate was the last item that we tried before calling it a night. Another new-to-me dish and I'm hooked! If you need me, I'll be outside grilling spring onions.
