Bethel’s Sweet n’ Salado Latin American Restaurant is Closing
Jim and Delfa Gay, owners of Sweet n’ Salado Latin American Restaurant, located at 281 Greenwood Avenue in Bethel, CT (opposite Sycamore), have just announced they are closing. They had opened on March 14, 2014. They were known for their Latin American Cuisine from Ecuador, Peru, Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, as well as a changing variety of classic American favorite comfort foods, such as tacos, burritos, empanadas, soups, salads and sandwiches.
In a message on their Facebook page they wrote:
To our valued customers:
My wife and I would like to thank you for your loyal patronage for the past two years.
Closing our restaurant was a difficult decision for us. We truly enjoyed serving the Bethel community our fresh, made to order, burritos, tacos and Latin style dinner entrees.
Special thanks to our weekly regular customers. Joe C. who was almost always our first customer of the day. Maria and Joe I. thank you so much for your social media posts and love of fish tacos. Kurt S. who enjoyed his burritos, Buffalo mac n cheese and who was kind enough to print menus for us when we first opened. He refused to be paid. He just wanted to help promote a local Bethel business. Sara, Matt and fellow employees at New Antiquities who love to pork taco out. Robert P. and sons who like their burritos extra hot- sometimes. Cindy and Richard A. who enjoyed a family burrito night topped off with a cheese-less maduro. Art and Rob from Shepard’s Moving and Storage who enjoyed their weekly taco lunch with out fresh guacamole and super extra hot sauce. Ashley from True Value who would treat her family to dinner on weekends. Gail from Agway who enjoyed her 3-Bean no bacon avocado burrito, sometimes more than once per week. John the retired Ridgefield mailman who tried almost everything on our menu patiently doing crossword puzzles while waiting for his dinner to come out. Hector R. who always ordered a Sanfrandiego burrito without french fries. He really wanted a Mission style burrito. Even after explaining the difference he would still call and order the Sanfrandiego without fries and we would both laugh. To all others that frequently visited and appreciated the concept of fresh, made for you food. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
God bless you, We will always remember you,
Jim and Delfa
