Salted Sea opened in Spring 2015, standing upon a site with much history, dating back to 1905 when the original structure was built as a friendly neighborhood barbershop and poolroom. Since then, the building has been home to several local businesses over the years with the most recent being Angie’s Tavern, who served residents from 1985 until 2011.
The original structure has since been replaced. In the same vein as those before Salted Sea is following suit to keep local businesses alive and to serve the 98118. It is a family-owned and community-oriented restaurant whose menu is crafted and influenced by roots stemming from both sides of the vast Pacific Ocean – Vietnam and the Pacific Northwest.
There is available street parking Rainier Avenue and additional cross-streets throughout Columbia City.
