First Look: Inside Sel de Mer, and Its Menu

This week the magazine reports on the opening of the new Williamsburg seafood restaurant Sel de Mer. Chef-owner Jeff Slagg, in the penny-pinching spirit of the day, completely renovated the former Najeeb’s space himself and even built a new bar. Until the beer-and-wine license arrives, however, housemade watermelon-mint juice will have to do. Check out the menu and a slideshow.
