Salt Creek Grille has some amazing eats and drinks. You will want to make this place a regular or make it a special trip anytime you are in the Southern California area!

About Salt Creek Grille

Tim McCune and his original business partner, Pete Truxaw, dreamed of creating a neighborhood restaurant tailored to their community. They envisioned an upscale yet casual American-themed grille, where friends and family would come to relax and savor a unique dining experience. It was from that dream that Salt Creek Grille was born. I think it’s safe to say this is a success as both the outside patio and indoors were packed upon arrival with folks both relaxing and enjoying a nice meal, on a Wednesday evening.

Salt Creek Grille grills their meats over hot, mesquite embers. With a dedication to sourcing responsibly, their food is crafted with the freshest meats, poultry, fish, and produce available. The menu is paired with unique wines from boutique vineyards and well-known cellars, catering to both the connoisseur and causal taster.

The menu is only one part of the dining experience. Creating a nurturing culture among the staff that emphasizes sincere and attentive hospitality is of the utmost importance and is very noticeable the second you walk through the door. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable to make dining a relaxing and memorable experience for everyone. Take a look!

The beautiful and inviting patio. I chose to wait until we were leaving to grab this shot, it was THAT busy before!


The cozy and warm fire pit where you can hang out while you wait for your table.

This intimate organization of restaurants is located on the two coasts: Rumson and Princeton in New Jersey, and Valencia, El Segundo, and Dana Point in California.

So come experience the Salt Creek Grille way with me!

First we started out with some drinks of course!


I love blood oranges, so I just had to try the Blood Orange Margarita. It was divine. We were here on Wine Wednesday where you can get wine for 1/2 off, so my friend ordered some wine.

Next up we tried a couple of the appetizers. Boy were we in for a real treat!

Ahi Tuna Stack


Served up Sashimi Style with avocado, cucumber, wasabi, and ginger soy. So yummy!

Risotto & Goat Cheese “Beignets”


Next, we tried one that came highly recommended to us, so we HAD to try it. Arborio Rice, Black Truffles, Asiago, Goat Cheese, Roasted Tomato & Red Bell Pepper Sauce. Let’s just say this didn’t last very long… so yes it is good. These are amazing!

Then we tried one of the side salads.

Enjoy City Tavern’s Seasonal Winter Delights!

By Erin

Have you been enjoying the holidays? With so many seasonal and holiday goodies out there to choose from, it’s hard to decide what to get or where to go! Well, I have a few more items that you won’t want to miss out on. City Tavern located at FIGat7th in DTLA has some amazingĀ winter and holiday food and drink delights to ring in the new year with.


FIGat7th is all decked out with pretty lights, snowflakes and a beautiful tree.


It’s been pretty chilly here in LA. Make sure you try one of these to warm up! The Winter Spice: Chai tea and vanilla bean infused spiced rum with ginger, cinnamon and cream. $10 They are amazing…. the perfect winter cocktail. Once you have had one, you might just need to get a second one. They’re just that good. šŸ™‚


If you have a yummy Winter Spice Cocktail, then you’re going to want to have a charcuterie and cheese slateĀ to go with it. Artisanal cured meats, farmhouse cheeses, crisps, seasonal jam, mustard and more. A very enjoyable and delicious way to sip and savor the flavors of the season.


I love my veggies, so when it was recommended to me to try theĀ charred brussels sprouts, I was all for it! Brussels Sprouts topped with Bacon and a sweet chili glaze, made for a heavenly veggie delight!


For the holiday season, City Tavern has the grilled ham chop.Ā A cured pork chop, corn cake, crispy poached egg, green beans, with a bourbon glaze. I loved every bite of this one. The ham was so tender and melt in your mouth good and I just love green beans and corn cake. Yum! This is a holiday treat you must try.


All of the desserts here look so tasty, but we decided on one that I’ve always loved having as a child. The pineapple-upside-down-cake. Very moist and creamy topped with lots of fresh pineapple pieces.


If you’re looking for some seasonal winter treats to sink your teeth into, make sure to stop on by to City Tavern at FIGat7th! You’ll be glad you did. Make sure to have one of those Winter Spice Cocktails for me too! šŸ˜‰
