Where can you enjoy tapas, roasted suckling pig, and fine sangria all within a breezy indoor/outdoor garden? Enter Salinas restaurant, a new 90-seat venue in the heart of Chelsea. This lively, but well proportioned restaurant features three intimate event spaces including a 35-seat garden equipped with a retractable glass roof, a waterfall, and a working fireplace (talk about accommodating for all seasons!). The main dining room has a distinctly Mediterranean feel with limestone walls and plush blue velvet upholstery. Adjacent to the main dining room is the tapas room and bar, which serves over 75 Spanish Wines and Sangria inspired cocktails crafted by Mixologist Orson Salicetti.

Signature entrees at Salinas are the slow roast suckling pig cooked in a sherry reduction and the seafood paella with calasparra rice, monkfish, clams, mussels, and lemon. Popular tapas dishes include the corn crusted veal cheeks, and the Spanish flat bread. For private events, the menu can be customized courtesy of Salinas’ award winning Head Chef Luis Bollo.
