Fabrizio and Ingrid Aielli opened the glamorous second outpost of their Italian seafood extravaganza (the first is in Naples, Fla.) early in 2015. This is traditional fine dining with a deep-pockets/far-reaching wine list and a sumptuously appointed dining room. (Even the ladies' room boasts excellent purse knobs.) True to its name, bread comes with a trio of exotic salts and a cruet of oil. But oyster service is the best thing about Sea Salt. Oysters are pristinely fresh, and they come from British Columbia to Maine and a lot of places in between. Well, where there's water. Served simply on a round metal ice-filled tray with horseradish, cocktail sauce and a lovely mignonette, they are memorably good. The rest of the menu splits between elegantly simple seafood preparations and glamorous spins on traditional pastas. After a rich and smooth tomato bisque and a salad pairing roasted beets with sweet peaches, dive into a gutsy wagyu beef Bolognese, a rosy Jackman Ranch Akaushi tenderloin gussied with cocoa nibs and a foie gras sauce and paired with broccolini ($43), or a textbook black grouper set atop a fava and pea puree. Hours: 4:30 to 10 p.m. Sunday to Thursday, until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
