The Salt Line Opens on Tuesday, Oct. 19

Published October 7, 2021

Who’s ready for oysters? While it was originally supposed to open in 2020, the pandemic pushed the opening of The Salt Line at 4040 Wilson Boulevard to 2021.

The Salt Line, from chef Kyle Bailey and Long Shot Hospitality (The Dubliner, Town Hall), is the ground floor anchor tenant at 4040 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington, Virginia.

As stated by ArlNow, “The Salt Line is located in the tallest building in Ballston and is the restaurant’s second location. The other is in Navy Yard and was the Washington Nationals’ unofficial party spot during their World Series run in 2019, perhaps related to possibly-soon-to-retire Ryan Zimmerman being an investor and part-owner.

The new 3,800-square foot space in Ballston will include ‘ample seating’ with both indoor and ‘al fresco’ (outdoor) dining. It will have a similar menu as the Navy Yard location, including lobster rolls, clam chowder, rockfish, and oysters. Also, according to a press release, there will be ‘house-made pastas, an expanded selection of crudos, and daily lunch service.'”
