Salt in the Central West End, the best of 2011's new restaurants
​At last, Gut Check closes the books on 2011 with our annual roundup of all the year's openings and closings and relocations. Of course, we say "at last" knowing that, in spite of our best efforts, we likely missed more than a few restaurant debuts and departures. Please let us know in the comments!
