this sunday is our final saltbox sunday supper club of 2020
it's only befitting that we finish with a party-
A TAILGATE PARTY!
11:30am-2:30pm
(or until it's gone!)

chef derrick jones of pixar is in the house, sharing his immense knowledge of the art of barbecue and smoked meat. this week-long process of brining, spice rubbing, and slow smoking over hardwood for 12 hours, is a practice in patience. one that has been handed down to derrick by his grandpops bobby (from new orleans) and now, lucky for us, derrick is bringing this legacy of pitmaster prowess right here to san carlos

join us for our tailgate patio party or order online to take home
(1:25pm kick-off. niners vs seahawks)

long before the aaron franklins and billy durneys of the world cooked their first briskets, generations of Black American pit masters laid the groundwork for that great and uniquely American culinary tradition we know as barbecue. come enjoy great food made with love and generational knowledge, while also supporting a truly talented chef and dear friend of the saltbox- chef derrick jones

it's sweater weather!
as chefs we look forward to the change of seasons to inspire our menus and our mindsets
autumn produce, holiday festivities, cozy candlelight
however this year the change of seasons brings some cause for concern as well
chilly temperatures could compromise the outdoor dining business that restaurants have come to rely on
thankfully, here in the bay area we're blessed with a temperate climate!
so crack out your sweaters, and bring your own blankets, so that all of your local restaurants can continue to serve up fine food to good people in the safety of the outdoor dining spaces they've all created for you
(note: our outdoor heaters are on the way!)

sunday pop-up: bánh mì (pronounced "bun-mee")
4:30pm-7pm (or until they're gone!)
come check out chef aaron grimm of pixar's delicious menu featuring the super fresh flavors of Viet Nam.
a bánh mì sandwich is the culinary love child of two distinct civilizations, the Viet and the French. it also happens to be the perfect food for a carefree evening on our patio or sitting at-home watching the game. let us do the cooking, while you rest-up for the week ahead.
(this week's pop-up menu is available for take-out. give us a call. go niners!)

tonight we welcome chef tim hilt of oracle to our saltbox sandbox.
tim's 'farewell to summer' small plates menu allows us one last taste of the bay area's best tomatoes and corn.
farmer fred hempel's 'green bee farm' tomatoes are coveted by chefs; we feel so lucky to have gotten our hands on enough of them to share with you tonight!

To our beloved Saltbox San Carlos community,
Given current state and county mandates, and the science-based advice to reduce nonessential social contact, Johnstons Saltbox has made the difficult but obvious decision to temporarily shift gears to a take-out only concept, Saltbox Provisions.
Effective Tuesday March 17th, and until further notice, Saltbox Provisions will offer take out food and other delicious essentials ( cheese, milk, eggs, butcher shop items, toilet paper) available to pick up from our patio “wine window”.
We look forward to doing what we can to support our community through these uncertain times and to assist our industry to recover, and most importantly to make our team whole again.

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the devastating wildfires in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Lake counties.

The Team at Johnston’s Saltbox has been researching how best to provide immediate assistance and support for the victims and first responders.
