I love working with restaurants when the team is as passionate about their craft as I am about mine. This is one you’ll want to keep an eye on and I’m excited to share some sneak peeks from our shoot together out in Colorado. I have been meaning to gush over Rex’s Family of Restaurants newest addition, Salt & Lime, since the new year, so come and get it!
Salt & Lime is located in the heart of Steamboat Springs, right on Lincoln Avenue. When I walked into the restaurant, I was greeted with an abundance of natural light pouring in from the large front windows and a lot of open space with bright white walls, blue bar stools and hints of warm reds, pinks and yellows scattered throughout the booths and wall decor.
When you walk in, the bar is set off to the right and leads your eye towards a large and beautiful graffiti display painted on the back wall. There’s a seat to please everyone’s comfort, from “belly-up-to-the-bar” stools, to cozy booths and even high top tables. I sat at the bar after our shoot together and this summer, Mike and I plan to sit on their roof deck. Yep, they have a roof deck too.
Salt & Lime’s menu consists of a twist on classic Mexican food and the flavors are fresh, colorful and delicious. Chef Vicki knows her food. I enjoyed the fish tacos and the loaded guacamole for lunch after my shoot. And, even though I was in Colorado in the heart of winter, her food made me feel like I was somewhere warm and tropical for a moment… I savored every minute of it.
