PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
There are few restaurants that leave your senses completely "blissed out" on every level. Summer Salt is one of those places. At this popular seafront cornucopia of excellence, generous and laid-back waitstaff surpass expectation and have all mastered the art of the up-sell. Rightly so, everything on the Summer Salt menu deserves applause and admiration of Executive Chef and Owner, Carl Jensen, whose inspiration and attention to detail is as ever rolling as the ocean surf right there before you.
In one of the better Asian and Australian fusion menus, Jensen executes the popular marriage with dynamic balance and passionate integrity. ‘Gran finesse' would be an understatement. With "happy birthday" being sung from more than four large tables, it's clear that Summer Salt is an extra-special event location for Cronulla locals and patrons from afar. A seasonally-changing menu, that also features daily specials, helps the celebrations along. The signature dish, an assiette of duck, consists of confit with Persian fetta salad, oven-roasted breast with parsnip puree and twice-cooked leg with orange and cassia bark glaze. A deconstructed white chocolate cheesecake, dark chocolate sorbet and hazelnut praline encase diners for dessert, along with medium dry kisses from a New Zealand Vavasour Redwood Pass Sauvignon Blanc.
