Venerable restaurateur Jack Allen of Jack Allen’s Kitchens in Austin dives into seafood with his newest concept. With conservation top of mind, Salt Traders’ seafood is sustainably sourced along the U.S. coastline, and the restaurant has partnered with the Coastal Conservation Association.
The supper menu showcases fresh fish, chowder and non-seafood classics such as steak, a burger, a thick-cut pork chop and wood-fired chicken. Fresh Gulf oysters on the half shell, ceviche, crudo and more are dispensed from the raw bar, along with refreshing cocktails to match including the signature frozen grapefruit margarita.
The casual space with an East Coast sea shack vibe was designed by LEVY Architects and reflects coastal influences with thematic artwork, 100-year-old reclaimed wood finishes, unique salt block chandeliers and a colorful patio.
