Live music at restaurants typically marks the end of the week, but at Slates Restaurant it marks the beginning. As part of the eatery’s concert series, an eclectic lineup of musicians and singer-songwriters takes the stage on Monday nights. The shows complement the art-filled atmosphere Slates also exudes in its decor, with works from monthly rotating exhibits adorning exposed brick walls and sweeping murals on other walls and tables.
In the open kitchen, owner and head chef Wendy Larson demonstrates her own artistry by cooking a diverse menu from seasonal, natural, and regionally sourced ingredients. That includes plenty of fresh seafood, from the Maine lobster topping a grilled pizza on house-made whole-wheat crust to the baked scrod paired with a smoked salmon Boursin roulade.
Non-seafood options include natural Angus steak burgers or, at brunch, French toast made with fresh bread. Starting at 7 a.m. every day, Wendy’s bakers create cakes, pies, and quiches, while cooks in the deli area specialize in quesadillas with house-made salsa and breakfast sandwiches with natural meats.
