Sal y Fuego is a modern bistro on the banks of the RĂo Negro. Contemporary artwork and sculptures accent its egg-shell white interior. The menu presents a cornucopia of colors, textures and sabores (flavors): sal y fuego (appetizers), verdes (salads), rojos (red meats), blancos (chicken), trigo (pastas) and mar y rĂo (fish and seafood). Simpler fare, like sandwiches and salads, is served at the adjoining, weeping willow tree-shaded CafĂ© del Sauce. The cafĂ© is open daily 8 a.m.-3 a.m.; restaurant noon-3:30 p.m., 9 p.m.-midnight.
