Sea Salt Eatery will open for the season on Friday – but things will be different

The restaurant near Minnehaha Falls announced its plans to open for takeout.

Sea Salt Eatery is opening for the season on Friday, May 22, but expect things to be different this summer. 

The restaurant at Minnehaha Regional Park in Minneapolis will reopen for takeout orders that people can make on a soon-to-be-released takeout website (it'll be available on Friday), Sea Salt said in a Facebook post on Wednesday.

The menu to start will be "pretty limited" and won't include ice cream, the post says, adding that "we have French fries in hopes of buying your love." There will also be beer and cider on the menu, with bottles of wine available "as soon as possible."

In a summer that isn't affected by a pandemic, Sea Salt offers counter service and a patio where people can enjoy seafood and beverages. That's not the case this year, with Sea Salt noting that to ensure a no-contact setting, it is not accepting walk-ins and all transactions will be handled through its new website. It has also packed away its tables and chairs, so it says people should prepare for a take-out picnic in the park. 

"We also have added safety-related steps in the kitchen and all staff will be wearing masks and gloves," the post said. 

Takeout orders can be made between 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. and 4:30-7:30 p.m. After placing your order, you'll get a confirmation text or email. Then you'll get another one once your order is ready to pick up at the front patio. 

In the coming days and weeks, Sea Salt says it expects its menu and set-up to "continually evolve" and it will share changes on its Facebook page as they occur. 

"Please be patient with us as we adjust to a lot of changes," Sea Salt says. "Online orders and many other revised processes make this feel like a whole new restaurant."
