Sea Salt plans to open a new sandwich shop at Minnehaha Falls in May.

Why it matters: The expansion, dubbed The Sandwich Room at Sea Salt, adds options and capacity to the city's most popular park eatery.

What to expect: Cold sandwiches and a rotating menu of other grab-and-go foods, per neighborhood news outlet Longfellow Whatever, which first reported the news.

  • Longtime Sea Salt manager Kait Ziemer-Davis told the publication that the idea is to give park goers "simple and flavorful" options for when they don't have time or interest in sitting and waiting for a meal.

Plus: They're adding a beer counter with a dozen taps next to the sandwich window.

  • Both will be located inside the park pavilion that houses the original Sa Salt seafood restaurant.

What they're saying: A spokesperson for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board confirmed to Axios that the expansion was approved by commissioners as part of Sea Salt's contract renewal.

  • Restaurant managers have not yet responded to Axios' request for more details.

What's next: Sea Salt opens for the season on April 19, per Longfellow Whatever.
