Local restaurateur Gianfranco Percovich's new South American restaurant Sal y Pimienta recently celebrated its public debut. Uruguay-born Percovich previously worked with the Cordúa Restaurant Group, helping 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 open his own establishment: A casual South American concept with a name that translates literally to "salt and pepper." "When the meat is this good, all you need is salt and pepper. And of course, a great chimichurri. We will be serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day," Percovich said. "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 now open 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.
