Mayor R.T. Rybak requests a "Sea Salt-like restaurant" in Downtown East
|Sea Salt: Coming soon to Downtown East?|
It makes sense. Places like Tin Fish at Lake Calhoun, Bread and Pickle at Harriet, Sea Salt at Minnehaha Falls, and most recently Sandcastle at Lake Nokomis have all generated revenue (which the Park Board takes a cut of) and helped to attract visitors from all over to these respective parks and lakes. The current Downtown East development proposal contains a caveat that the city can sell a piece of the planned parkland to a private developer. That developer, in this case Ryan Cos., would then work with the city to build the space and open up the restaurant.
