Just in case anybody gets this post as a feed, let me send out a correction: El Salto is not closed. I mistakenly said yesterday that it was when I was in Brooklyn. I just called them, because it seemed weird that so many great reviews are floating around, and one reader, Anonymous Coworker, even went there last week. So I called, and lo and behold, someone answered. It looks like I just saw a newly vacant building nearby instead.
So let me shout one last time: EL SALTO IS VERY MUCH OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!! I have since deleted the post where I said it was. My humblest apologies.
