Salty's In Seattle Area?

Recommended Posts


Has anyone ever had luck eating at Salty's in the Seattle area? I know we take a risk whenever we eat out, and I will need to communicate with the restaurant, but I thought I would ask. My kids got free meal coupons for Salty's brunch for participating in a walkathon at school. Oh, how I hate food rewards, but I hate to say no to my son again. Seems like I am always doing that. :(

I've eaten at Salty's in Des Moines. We called ahead and were assured that they could accomodate us. When we got there, we asked for the manager, who came out and seemed pretty knowledgable. I had a good meal and did not get sick. It was a little bland though - fish and steamed vegetables, which was fine for me, but might be boring for your son. If you can call ahead and talk to the manager to see what's on the menu for brunch you might have some luck.

A question I can answer! I have taken my parents (from out of town) to have brunch there this past summer (Aug 25, 2007), the Alki Beach location. I inquired with them beforehand (about 3 wks prior) via email, because I need to be gluten- dairy- and egg-free. To my delight, Chef Levi Palli responded (this took a while because the email was forwarded to him) to my question and said that while there is no gluten-free menu, he'd be happy to make me a special dish. I responded, thanked him, and made a reservation. I also tried going in when it was a little slower at the restaurant so it's not all crazy and I can get enough attention. He said Saturday is slower than Sunday and their "down" time was Saturday between 10am and 11am (usually).

When we showed up (our reservation was Saturday at 11 AM), I told them that I'd talked to chef Levi (pronounced like the jean brand I believe). They even went to fetch him from the kitchen and he showed us to our table (great table by the window!), and I was able to talk to him about which things out of the buffet I could potentially eat. Then I asked him if he could in fact whip up something like a potato scramble with onion and veggies, and he made me a really yummy one, complete with some flowers on the plate! I was stuffed and very pleased. I think there were a few things I could eat off the buffet; if you can eat dairy and eggs, you could probably eat a lot more.

I'm not sure if he still works there, but he was such a nice young gentleman, so if he is still there I highly recommend it :-) I also recommend going there during a slower time so you can get your deserved attention too.

Good luck!

Here's a copy of his original response (as of Aug. 6, 2007):

Thank you for showing a interest in our Famous weekend Brunch, we would love to have you and your family come join us for Brunch on Saturday or Sunday. As for your specific questions about our food they are as follows:

Sorry, we do not have a gulten free menu for you to choose from. Dairy and eggs are a staple of American Brunch, but we would like to try to find something else you may have, I would love to make you a personal dish to avoid any cross contamination. Our cocktail sauce has ketchup, chili sauce, horseradish, lemon juice, worechestershire sauce, black pepper and garlic and is made on site. You may want to bring salad dressings. Please let me know if this has helped you or if you have any questions. Thank you

Chef Levi Palli

    Oh yes, it could, although to be honest I never got myself so wet with sweat that it would have been a serious situation.  However, I can remember one time when I got caught in a cloudburst while going to my car in a large parking lot, though, and got soaked to the skin, and of course had to wear those soaking-wet clothes while I drove the 45 minutes it took me to get home --- I will NEVER forgot the misery and agony of that drive!  I could just barely keep the car under control, in fact.
    Thanks for your response, Squirmingitch, but I have to almost laugh, as at this point I am not really stressing over these questions at all --- just curious.  I have always been an insatiable question-asker, so please don't take my frequent questions as a sign of my obsessing over celiac disease or DH.  Yeah, admittedly I was rather stressed out for a couple of days two weeks  ago or so, but I am significantly settled down now, even while negotiating the nutritional maze of trying to manage two
Water?! That's… unreasonably inconvenient. Did it happen with sweat?
