A new restaurant/sandwich shop named Bacon and Brine has opened at 453 Atterdag Road in Solvang. The eatery uses all locally raised pigs and produce from neighboring areas, with no ingredients from over 60 miles, except salt, vinegar and spice. Bacon and Brine offers a rotating menu of sandwiches based on what part of the pig they are using that week. About five sandwiches a week are available as well as soup and a few salads. Bread comes from The Bakers Table in Santa Ynez and they are making all of their own pickles and beverages. Everything is available gluten-free. The restaurant is open daily 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. except Tuesdays. For more information call 688-8809 or visit baconandbrine.com.
