Located at the ass end of St. Vincent’s Court where the high octane kitsch dining alley opens onto the main drag of the Jewelry District, Salt N Peppa plays like a gauntlet thrown down to the hidebound eateries where the elder generation of jewelers have left permanent clefts in the pavement beneath the chairs they’ve occupied for decades.
Salt N Peppa is upbeat and well lit. Clean white is the dominant motif. Two large side by side TVs play Sports Center. A crisp sound system inundates the counter area and orchid clad tables beyond with a high BPM sampler of contemporary electronica representing a Near East crescent between Romania and India.
