The Authentic taste of Spain in Chelsea NYC

Salinas is a unique and vibrant award-winning restaurant in the heart of West Chelsea serving the full culinary experience of Spain. Opened on June 8th of 2010, Salinas specializes in both traditional and inventive tapas as well as regional main course dishes. Salinas has received several accolades, including a 2-star rating by the New York Times. 

Chef Luis Bollo, is a co-owner of Salinas and native of San Sebastian in the heart of Basque Country. He focuses on traditional, rustic cooking to introduce lesser-known dishes from the regions of the Spanish Mediterranean. His early training in numerous Michelin star rated restaurants throughout Spain as well as extensive family recipes passed down through the generations, form the inspiration for Salinas cuisine.
