Sel de Mer
This venue is closed.
With its curtained façade, simple décor, and affordable menu, Sel de Mer reminds us of another Brooklyn seafood bistro: the original La Bouillabaisse during its Atlantic Avenue heyday. The tabs here are kept delightfully low for meals showcasing generous portions of fresh seafood in imaginative preparations that change daily, like halibut served over coconut-milk-creamed spinach with crispy potatoes ($14), and a curried grouper ($15) that chef-owner Jeff Slagg dreamed up on a stroll down East 6th Street. There are three versions of moules-frites, and a selection of whole fish of the day. But the best deal might be the pair of so-called fish-cake sliders: two hefty hake burgers on toasted English muffins, served with a mound of cole slaw and the expectation that you’ll need a doggy bag ($16).
