Salts in Cambridge Is Looking for a New Home

Earlier this winter, we reported that a French-influenced restaurant in Cambridge that had been closed because of water damage was hoping to reopen in its space at some point. Now we have learned that this is apparently not going to be happening after all.

According to a License Commission General Hearing minutes page within the City of Cambridge website, Salts on Main Street is requesting that its beer and wine license remain inactive because according to them, its landlord (MIT) has decided not to renovate the space and no longer wants a restaurant there. As a result, Salts co-owner Gabriel Bremer says that they are now looking for a new space, and the city, after hearing this from Bremer, has allowed an extension of six months on the license being inactive, at which point Bremer updates them on the situation if a new home for the eatery has not been found.

Salts was forced to close because of a flood in January of 2014 that "completely destroyed" the restaurant. The dining spot had been in business since the late 1990s.

The address for Salts is 798 Main Street, Cambridge, MA, 02139. Its website can be found at

Thanks to a poster on the Chowhound site for bringing this to our attention.
