Salt’s Cure chef-owners Zak Walters and Chris Phelps are extending the restaurant’s hours with an afternoon wine bar service between lunch and dinner, beginning Monday.

The West Hollywood restaurant’s wine list will be served Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons (it’s closed Tuesdays) from 3 to 5:30 p.m. with house-made charcuterie, cheeses, a daily farmers market salad and the Salt’s Cure Burger.


Which makes for a nice pit stop if you happen to have a free weekday afternoon and are, um, cruising Santa Monica Boulevard.

Salt’s Cure’s wine list, edited by Walters and Phelps, recently was named Best Natural Wine List by LA Weekly and features almost exclusively California natural wines made from grapes grown without pesticides or additives including sugar, color and extra acidity. Many are unfiltered.


The restaurant focuses on local organically farmed products. “Our wine is coming from the same land that our food is coming from,” says Walters in a release, “and it goes very nicely together.”

7494 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, Salt’s Cure serves lunch weekdays and weekend brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dinner is served Monday and Wednesday to Sunday 5:30 to 10:30 p.m.
