Salut Kitchen Bar +

Laura Hahnefeld

This easygoing wine bar, about two miles away from Mill Avenue, is a comfortable place to escape Tempe’s more chaotic main drag. But although its selection of over fifty kinds of Old and New World wines, as well as craft brews and cocktails, satisfies, its offerings in the way of familiar American and Mediterranean-inspired eats --- think bruschetta, bar snacks, sandwiches, salads, and a few entrees -- fall a step or two behind. Best bets include shared plates of fries topped with Parmesan and feta cheese, mildly spicy and sweet red peppers stuffed with goat cheese, and pita chip “nachos” topped with hummus. Still hungry? Order up the signature Salut burger.
