Food:Vintage Salt Supper Club

Vintage Salt supper-club

Nestled on the buzzing foodie mile of Upper Street,Vintage Salt has a lot of restaurant neighbours! But the interior of Vintage Salt is something that marks it as a little bit different.

From the outside you might be fooled into thinking that it is a sit down fish and chippy, but the inside promises a lot more. Taking inspiration from Cornwall, the wood-panelled, flotsam and jetsam encrusted restaurant is like entering a well worn ship.

The ‘normal’ menu offers everything from rock oysters to fish finger butties to fish pie with cheesy mash, which is enough to tantalise you back for a second or third visit! But Chef Director, Lee Bull, who appreciates the regular customer, has engineered a weekly three course “Supper Club” with a meat and fishy option, to showcase specialties and something different.

Razor clam thermidor

I tried the Seared salmon, tea smoked salmon “hummus” salt cured quails yolk, which was melt in the mouth delicious, followed by roasted cod and razor clam thermidor- which was a sight to behold! I even ‘forced’ myself to sample some freshly baked rye bread and a cherry merengue mess of a desert… I kind of missed some greenery or sides with the main, but with great company and lots of wine, this wasn’t too much hard work for a Wednesday night!
