Now that Le Sel finally opened its doors for the first dinner service last night, the big question is: what's on the menu?. Well wonder no more, as Eater has the first look at all of the restaurant's opening week menus.
Le Sel certainly appears to be a bit more ambitious than most other restaurant openings in recent memory in regards to their service hours, with executive chef Rene De Leon and company coming right out of the gate with dinner, lunch and weekend brunch, as well as separate raw bar and The Bar at Le Sel menus.
A few key takeaways:
- The dinner menu includes a large format option, not often seen in Nashville, for parties of four to six. Offerings include salt crusted grouper at $38 per person, as well as veal shank for $34.
- The lunch menu is essentially a pared down version of dinner, with the addition of a three-course lunch option for $24.
- The brunch menu also has some crossover dishes, but has plenty of additions to help it stand out, including pastries and traditional breakfast staples like brioche French toast and a selection of omelets.
- There is also the addition of an even more pared down midday menu.
- Strategic Hospitality beverage director Matt Tocco has started Le Sel off with 10 featured cocktails, as well as four brunch options. Look for this to expand and change fairly often.
- Wine director Tim Rawding has selected roughly 80 bottles to start off their "wine book," 15 of which are available by the glass, along with three champagne options.
So head below to feast your eyes on all those menus, and be sure to let us know your first impressions, good, bar or otherwise, in the comments or via the tipline.
