Salt Meats Cheese will officially open the doors to its new Alexandria location this week.

Located at 21 Fountain Street Alexandria, the new venue is positioned just a few streets away from its former home on Bourke Rd and will be serving brunch, lunch and dinner seven days with breakfast service on weekends.

The new space is will occupy the old Cipro site and marks a welcome addition to the area with neighbouring businesses including Campos, Bread and Circus and Pana Chocolate. The space features a light filled dining area complete with a woodfire oven, open space kitchen and juice bar.

'We are excited to open on Fountain St,” says co-director Stefano De Blasi. “We have great memories of starting with our first shop on Bourke Rd and have come to know and love the community here'.

The menu has been crafted by Simona Ciantelli (formerly Buon Ricordo, Paddington) and offers a selection largely similar to the group's Drummoyne location with the addition of seasonal mains.

Dishes include risotto with saffron and Italian sausage, Italian style lamb chops with fresh herbs and seasonal salad and tagliolini pasta with prawns, calamari, mussels and grape tomatoes.

In addition to the new Alexandria location, Salt Meats Cheese will also be opening a fifth location near Broadway Shopping centre, at 66 Bay St Ultimo. The venue is slated to open later this month.
