BlackSalt restaurant and fish market is back in action.

Good news for Palisades dining: BlackSalt reopens tonight. Owners Jeff and Barbara Black temporarily closed the restaurant and fish market for renovations and a menu revamp in late September.

Interior changes include new banquettes and booth seating in the walk-in-only bar area. The kitchen also received a wood-burning Aztec grill. Chef Mike Huff reworked the menu, adding fall dishes such as butter-poached lobster with shaved Brussels sprouts, and a prawn-red miso stew with shrimp dumpling and mushrooms. There’re also two new styles of mussels joining the classic Addie’s: a Mexican riff with chorizo, poblano peppers, and red mole, and a Thai-style version with coconut milk and lemongrass.
