Chantelle Hylton makes food for Salmonberry Commons with bounty grown and harvested by our community, in service of our vibrant North Coast food system.
Salmonberry Commons was started in March of 2020 as a way to provide our community with hard-to-source items like yeast and bread flour. As the year progressed, we found solace in the kitchen and in making food for friends we couldn’t hug – but we could warm their bellies and give them nourishment.
Our offerings gradually expanded to include dishes and flavors not available on the North Coast, and would eventually inform the evolution of our restaurant, The Salmonberry. We open May 21st for outdoor dining with a menu heavy on pasta and our local seafood, guided by chef Charles Lutka who spent time in Michelin-starred restaurants including Marea and WD-50 in New York City.
In every dish you’ll find ingredients from several of our friends and something from our own harvest.
We hope you enjoy, and feel the love we have for our community, this place, and nourishing our friends and the land that feeds us.
