Salt & Cleaver San Diego

The Missing Link


Published:

It’s the logical apex of the red-white-and-food movement. Gourmet mac ’n’ cheese begat designer burgers, which led to highfalutin’ fries. And now... chefly hot dogs, at Hillcrest’s Salt & Cleaver. Well— sausages, actually. Like the pork belly (bacon sausage with lemongrass-ginger relish), a killer lobster roulade (lobster-and-leek sausage, tarragon aioli), or the duck-duck-pig (duck and bacon sausage with duck confit, bacon aioli, and orange marmalade). Come nighttime, S&C is swarmed for its cocktails (the Collins has Ballast Point gin, lemon-grapefruit juice, and lemongrass simple syrup), but the fancy- pants meat torpedoes make a nice lunch, too. 3805 Fifth Avenue, Hillcrest
