The Meadow Salt Dispensary Opens

the meadow opens!

You’ll do anything to score just one perfect, crystalline nugget.

But now it’s legal in NYC: Portland salt dispensary The Meadow has just opened in the West Village, offering taste-enhancing substances that’ll appease both selmeliers and finicky gift getters.

Present-ready glass jars brim with a rainbow of exotic crystals like French sel gris, pink Himalayan blocks, and Vietnamese and Djibouti pearls. No idea what to do with Brazilian sal grosso? Attend a tasting, cooking class, or salt pairing to learn where to sprinkle it.

Smoked, wine-infused, and cocktail seasonings are all on the menu, too, meaning that distinctive hostess gifts are a breeze (and, at $3-$10, within your budget). Plus, there’s a curated collection of chocolate bars, seasonal flowers, and infused bitters and syrups for last-minute presents.

Ensuring you’ll never be stuck between a rock and a hard place.

The Meadow, 523 Hudson Street, between Charles and West 10th Streets (212-645-4633 or atthemeadow.com).
