With a name that translates literally to "salt and pepper," it's likely that local restaurateur Gianfranco Percovich's upcoming restaurant Sal y Pimienta will feature flavor-forward dishes. Although Uruguay-born Percovich explains that the flavor will come from high quality ingredients rather than elaborate dry rub recipes: "When the meat is this good, all you need is salt and pepper. And of course, a great chimichurri." If a restaurant that centers around a solid South American-inspired, chimichurri-topped steak sounds familiar, it might be because Percovich has worked with the Cordúa Restaurant Group, which popularly brought South American flavor to Houston back when Latin-inspired restaurants were almost exclusively Mexican in variety. Percovich helped that restaurant group launch an Américas location in the Woodlands. Now, the former co-owner of Tango & Malbec in the Galleria area has decided that after ten years in the industry, it was time to debut a casual South American concept, and to do so in the bustling CityCentre development.

"Our foods will be flavored with South American spices, cooked on our wood-burning grill in the open kitchen. Our menu will feature the finest organic fish, meats and produce from around the world, all paired with the top one-hundred South American wines." The South American restaurant is slated to open this May. Once open, the restaurant hours will be Monday through Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 12 a.m.; Thursday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m.; Sunday from 11 a.m. to 12 a.m. Social hour will be weekdays from 3 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
