Redondo Beach New Dinner Menu by New Chef Aaron Grund

"The one thing you cannot teach someone
is passion. Our new Redondo Chef Aaron Grund
lives for the food industry and brings
pure passion to every plate he creates,"
says Salty's Head Chef Jeremy McLachlan.

Salty's cuisine and Chef Aaron's passion is a happy marriage of fresh Pacific Northwest seafood and modern Italian without neglecting his Nonna's traditional influence. We're calling it passion cuisine and you'll want to get into Redondo to experience it.

Born and raised in Seattle, Aaron became interested in the culinary arts at an early age. Raised by a single mother, he was helping her in the kitchen by the ripe age of three. At the age of six he could identify herbs and spices by smell alone. At 13 his choice for a Christmas present was a cooking class at Kirkland's well known Indian restaurant Shamiana. During his teens he travelled far and wide, to China, Thailand, Italy, Greece and Egypt, developing a passion for international cuisines. After graduating from high school he attended the Culinary Program at South Seattle Community College, and began a professional culinary career in the catering kitchen at Salty's on Alki Beach in West Seattle in 2000. After a few years, Aaron's passion for cooking cooled and he became a commercial diver in Lafayette, Louisiana, but soon realized his true love was cooking and returned to Seattle. He had brief stints working in the kitchens of Barking Frog and Canlis and then served as sous chef at Serafina before returning to Salty's in 2016 where he is now the executive chef at Redondo Beach. Chef Aaron loves traveling, gardening and getting to know Seattle's sustainable farmers and their products. You might find him at the Beacon Hill Food Forest and Farestart where he volunteers.

We're calling it passion cuisine.
