John Salt in London: A Neighborhood Bar

February 19, 2013

Where there’s smoke there’s fire, or at least that’s the case at John Salt, a newly opened pub in Islington specializing in open-flame cuisine.

With new chef Neil Rankin at the helm, the John Salt Bar in London is operated by 580 Limited, an independent pub company managing a hand-full of unique restaurants and bars in the UK. Most of the produce is sourced from suppliers in Cornwall and 90 percent of the menu has had some degree of smoke or fire added to it. For more information, visit John Salt.
