 “The winter months gave us the time to work on re-creating the outdoor space, and I can’t wait to share it with the Dayton community,” Salar owner and executive chef Margot Blondet said in a statement. “I brought a number of fresh, seasonal ingredients to the menu as well, and I wanted the new space to reflect that.”

Blondet, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu in Lima, Peru, opened Salar in 2013 at the former site of Sidebar.

The menu is inspired by Peruvian, French and Mediterranean cuisine.
