We received some strong intel off the tipster button yesterday afternoon that Salty Sow was going soft last night, so we figured it was as good a time as any to walk a block and a half from the homestead, work our way through the menu and issue a report.

Didn’t work out.

Walking into the old Red House Pizza, the building is unrecognizable. The rehab is incredible with soft lighting, low ceilings and a general feeling of good ambiance. The smells coming out of the kitchen were maddening. If the food’s half as good as the aroma, it’s going to be a home run from the Hopdoddy team.

But we couldn’t get fed.

The fete was for friends and family only.

Can’t wait to get back when they’re open/open and eat the source of those smells.
