The Roof is now open for the 2020 season!
Set in the historic Newmark building in the heart of downtown Salem, Counter is our modern take on a lunch counter with a dining experience rooted in fresh, simple, modern food. Our seasonal Salem restaurant features an open-concept kitchen and dining for 50 on the first floor of The Hotel Salem, with outdoor patio seating for 30. Our menu celebrates regional New England flavors, featuring clever starters, baked goods, and sandwiches. Counter is for the people of our small but vibrant city as well as for those passing through to gather over conversation, cocktails, and great food.
