Kathy Sidell - Owner
Captivated by the sea, blessed by the sun, and a maybe a little rough around the edges, “Saltie” isn’t a flavor profile to Kathy Sidell, President and Culinarian of the MET Restaurant Group, it’s a way of life. “Saltie Girl,” her newest restaurant in Boston, MA focuses on globally sustainable iterations of fresh fish & seafood. Be it fried, sautéed, raw, house-potted, smoked or in tins, this conscious curation is close to Sidell’s heart.
“Growing up on the East Coast on a sailboat with my Dad, I have a deep affinity for the saltiness of the sea and the fruit it bears. During my travels I have discovered beautiful, high quality fish in tins, jars, smoked and of course amazing local and fresh seafood. Being a New Englander is almost synonymous with the briny taste of steamed clams, the salty ocean taste of lobsters perfectly cooked, the creaminess of a local oyster and the natural sweetness of a Nantucket bay scallop. We are blessed to have such amazing seafood locally. I have long been fascinated by the many ways to enjoy these fruits of the sea. Hence, ‘Saltie Girl’ - reflecting a way of life and a passion for eating nature’s bounty! I hope to bring all these"
