About Us

Located within University of Miami’s RSMAS (next to Seaquarium) the SALT team welcomes you for lunch at our beautiful waterfront restaurant. Enjoy our friendly priced daily lunch specials in style at our outside deck overlooking Biscayne Bay. Our restaurant is open to the public, and welcomes non-students too.

With the opening of SALT Waterfront Restaurant in January 2014, a dream came true for Aaron Freedman, owner of Sidewalk Salads. Founded in 1996 as a food cart on one of downtown Miami’s sidewalk, it is now a thriving catering business and busier than ever. Beginning of 2014 Aaron took on the extra adventure of running his own restaurant/bar. His endless energy and ambition combined with a friendly staff has turned this dream into success. SALT and The Wetlab are proud to host a diverse mix of RSMAS students & staff, thirsty mountain bikers (Virginia Key MTB Trails are right across the street) and local beer enthusiasts.

We’d love to cater your next event here! Take a look around for inspiration – your suggestions and ideas are much appreciated. Possibilities for all budgets and group sizes – big or small – can be discussed. Our experienced catering staff takes great pride in offering exceptional service with warmth and hospitality, and we will turn your next event into a success!
