One ofMonmouth County’s most popular restaurants, the 14-year-old Salt Creek Grille, 4 Bingham Avenue, Rumson, New Jersey, recently announced a new menu with fresh, lighter fare and an emphasis upon local farms and products.

The new direction was spearheaded by veteran restaurateurs/co-founders Tim McCune & Pete Truxaw. First introduced atCalifornia’s Dana Point & El Segundo sites, the new menu has received rave reviews from both loyal guests and first-time patrons alike. The new menu offerings are now in place at both the Rumson & Princeton, NJ, locations.

The new reinvented menu interpretations intentionally utilize a variety of cooking methods and foods that are healthier for both the restaurant’s guests and the environment. Sauces rely less on cream & butter and more on a time-consuming yet healthier reduction process. “Super Foods” such as kale and whole grains like brown rice are now featured on the menu. The beef is all-natural and sourced from Creek Stone Farms; the chicken, which is organic and raised without antibiotics, is from Bell & Evans. Both of these companies adhere to sustainable farming practices.

The new menu reflects the best of contemporary, casual, and traditional cuisine at affordable prices, combining new specialties with classic Grille favorites. The new menu will include: Wood-fired, smoked ahi tuna with citrus, shaved celery, red grapes, and sherry vinaigrette on baby greens ($14.95); teriyaki burger, utilizing all-natural beef with teriyaki sauce, bacon, roasted red peppers, hot mustard & herb salad ($14.95); rock shrimp risotto with corn & basil ($15.95); citrus-glazed swordfish, baby tomatoes, citrus segments, and avocado mousse ($24.95); porterhouse fusilli with sliced all-natural filet & New York steak, seasonal vegetables over locally sourced Lucy’s hand-rolled pasta ($23.95); coffee-encrusted New York steak with baby arugula, locally sourced Great Hill blue cheese, oven roasted potatoes, and bourbon caramel ($28.95); grilled vegetable wrap with baby wild arugula, portobello mushrooms, heirloom tomatoes, locally sourced Bijou Buttons goat cheese, hummus with sweet potatoes fries ($12.95).

The menu also boasts an extensive wine list and an array of seafood, chops, creative salads, classic side dishes, and house-made desserts. In addition, several Salt Creek Grille signature dishes remain, such as the bacon-wrapped stuffed shrimp, double-cut pork chop, and the made-to-order chocolate ganache soufflé.
