Spring is in full bloom and many Capitol Riverfront fans are welcoming the return of The Salt Line. The riverside restaurant and bar by award-winning chef and partner Kyle Bailey reopens May 13. The all-takeout menu, known as TSL To-Go, will feature much of the traditional fare and New England-inspired classics for which the restaurant is known. The Salt Line will offer the To-Go menu items for pick-up or delivery.

The Build a Fresh Catch Plate comes with your fish of choice, sauce, side, and preparation. What’s more, this selection is prepared ready-to-eat or not. That’s because customers can take a ready-to-make version home along with easy-to-follow instructions

Guests will appreciate an inspired, pick-up only option in the Shuck Your Own oysters. This choice is sure to be popular, and the Salt Line’s custom shucking knife for $6 and step-by-step video tutorial are essentials. Harris Creek Oysters partnered to produce the instructional video.

Another takeout gem is the Happy Meal for Grown-Ups, featuring a choice of Sandwich, Cape Cod Chips, Stuffie, Whoopie Pie, and a 12-ounce Narragansett Lager $21. Custom upgrades are available: Try the Crispy Fish Sandwich, New England Smash Burger or a Lobster Roll. In addition, customers can also order family meals, serving four people. For:the first week, there’s a Porchetta as the family meals selection. For hearty appetites, a whole roasted Pork Belly comes with grilled Broccoli Rabe, Mac & Cheese, Parker House Rolls, and House Sauce.

TSL To-Go a-la-carte options.

There’s good variety in the a-la-carte options, also:

  • Clam Chowder
  • Baked Pimento Crab Dip
  • Crab Cobb Salad
  • Fried Chicken Sandwich with Hot Honey, Smoked Cheddar, and House Pickles on a Potato Bun

The beachy cocktails-for-two to-go are another reason to venture over for TSL pick-up. The fan-favorite Fish House Punch or frozen Del’s Shandy.always delight but don’t leave the premises without proper ID. The TSL To-Go menu is available Monday-Friday from 4:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and on Saturday & Sunday, from 12 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Check out the menu on The Salt Line’s website.

The Salt Line management team was appreciative of the generosity of fans and the local community that helped distribute $100K to its employees. The Salt Line’s own Ryan Zimmerman, a Washington Nationals first baseman, signed T-shirts that helped add to the kitty. 500 signed T-shirts were sold-out in less than 24 hours. This year, the Salt Line is a finalist for the Favorite Gathering Place RAMMY Award, selected by online voting. Check out all the RAMMYS finalists here.
