A much-awaited new concept from the MET Restaurant Group is getting closer and closer to opening. Saltie Girl, slated to open at 279 Dartmouth St. next door to MET Back Bay, is now hiring employees as it moves forward with putting the final touches on the restaurant space, according to a post on Craigslist.
News of Saltie Girl hit early last year, when Kathy Sidell revealed plans to turn the private event space Townhouse into a full-on restaurant, as previously reported. The restaurant will feature a large dining counter, along with plenty of small plates, seafood dishes, salads, and more.
Saltie Girl also has plans to can and jar seafood and vegetables, and its menu will feature a selection of craft cocktails. The restaurant has posted a number of updates on its social media, including some photos of testing dishes, window installations, and other food inspiration. It will be open for lunch and dinner.
