I do love looking at Restaurant Week menus. Some of them are so lame!

Salt Tavern in Upper Fells Point has a good one. It looks freshly considered -- although, that's a given at Salt, where Jason Ambrose and company regularly overhauls the menu. Also, the RW menu at Salt has more than the usual number of choices but is still focused and manageable. What do you think about Salt's RW menu -- if you haven't been for a while, does it tempt you to go back.
