Salt Creek Grille – El Segundo, CA

Recently writing about Pera made me think of a really wonderful restaurant in El Segundo.  Salt Creek Grille is a very calming restaurant to say the least.  From the inside to the outside it has a very tranquil setting, sort of like Koi, but with a non-Asian menu and theme.  The man-made creeks, mini waterfalls, firepits, etc in the outside area are stunning.  It’s very similar to what you’d expect at a spa or resort.  It’s refreshing, and even with the massive amount of filled tables and the jam-packed bar, it still managed to have a quietness about it.

To go with the all natural ambience, Salt Creek Grille also offers a very organic menu.  Like a lot of restaurants in and near LA, they offer fresh ingredients from a local produce.

I went with the Coffee Encrusted New York Steak.  It was awesome.  It was garnished with baby wild arugula & blue cheese, and came with roasted Yukon gold potatoes & bourbon caramel.  It was cooked to perfection, it was tender, and the accompaniments were fitting.

My FPIC who recommended this amazing place, ordered the Spaghetti Squash and Ricotta Ravioli.  It had corn, slivered almonds, snow peas, capers, cherry tomatoes, and kale & sweet heirloom tomato marmalade.  I tried her dish and although it was quite eclectic in taste, it was light yet filling, and it offered made-to-order pasta which I constantly crave.

There’s nothing like fresh, healthy food in a relaxing environment with a charming decor.  Salt Creek Grille – El Segundo was a great experience indeed.  It would definitely warrant a revisit.
