Be Creative, Find your Voice,
Love your life, Always,
Welcome to Sal’s. It is my privilege to open my kitchen and pantry and share my love for food and all things yum here at 104 Walnut Street, Montclair.
A few years back, I was given the opportunity to follow my dream of going to culinary school to learn and grow my passion for cooking. This led to me working at the vibrant Italian marketplace Eataly in the newly opened La Soula Grande, a regional cooking school. For Six year, I learned, ate, and digested all things Italian. Chef Alex Pilas encouraged me to learn about every region in Italy and to be true and authentic to each recipe using American seasonal products. Every day I learned something new, working with some amazing chefs, American and Italain. I moved from the Flatiron store to lauch Eataly NYC Downtown at Word Trade Center. Opening the store and running all aspects of its daily operations made me realize it was time to build on the dream of having my own kitchen.
I am connected to a community in Montclair, the place tht has been home for twenty-five years. It felt right to build a community kitchen here, a place where neighbors could get some good home cooking - seasonal, nourishing and comforting. It was important for me to create a room that would be welcoming and one that encouraged people to try and taste everything I offer. Sal's will be offering salads, sauces, sides and proteins all by the pound to take home. Sandwiches, Soups, Focaccia and some light lunch to eat at our tables. Dont forget to check out our market for any last minute anitpasti needs and the refrigerator for cheeses and cold drinks. So please do come by.
