Now Open: Salt Air Brings Seafood and Shandies to Abbot Kinney

Just about on schedule, restaurateur David Reiss (A-Frame, Sunny Spot, Littlefork) debuted his latest concept this weekend, Salt Air. The new Abbot Kinney spot took over the former Capri space for its breezy neighborhood vibe and seafood-focused menu. The room is all whitewashed brick, light and dark wood, and earthy tones. There's a small sidewalk patio and lots of light inside, plus a window-view into the kitchen and communal seating in the dining rooms.

Chef Greg A. Daniels, who worked in the Jean-Georges Vongerichten machine as exec sous-chef at Perry St. in New York, has things like fresh peas and ricotta on toast; fish skin chips with harissa and smoked onion dip; linguini and clams; whole fried snapper; and of course, lobster rolls. Brian Butler, who does the drinks program for some of Reiss' other restaurants, created beer and wine cocktails like a Shandy made with passion fruit and sour beer. Salt Air is open for dinner nightly, with weekend brunch coming in July and lunch later this summer.
