RE: Salt Lake City?
Musts in SLC? The Red Iguana, is an energetic Mexican place. I love the Chicken Mole Amarillo, but you really can not go wrong with anything on the menu, it really is a local treasure. It can get busy most nights but especially on weekends, with people lined up out the door. I am also fond of Canella's a small family run Italian eatery. It is open for lunch specializing mainly in sandwiches and pasta. Their Italian meatball or sausage sandwiches are the main draw. They are also open Thursday-Saturday evenings for dinner and entrees are in the $9 to $13 range. The price includes an appetizer plate of provolone cheese, grapes, breadsticks, peppers; followed by a salad and lastly garlic bread served with the entree, a bargain.(Bring your own bottle of wine, one of the quirks of Utah, not enough time to explain. I usually opt for the basic meatballs and spaghetti, but their menu is extensive with about 8 specials listed nightly on the chalkboard. For breakfast,I like the nothing fancy options of The Otherplace, a Greek restaurant, where I usually order their french toast,four large thick slices, they also have inexpensive lunches and dinners; or the Over-the-Counter Restaurant, in the suburban Millcreek area. They offer standard breakfast fare and good basic omlettes. Tony Caputo's deli is a great place to have lunch and people watch on weekdays it is more leisurely paced on weekends with shorter lines.If you are coming on an unlimited expense account, then I would suggest Log Haven up Millcreek Canyon, wonderful food, wonderful wine,and a wonderful alpine mountain setting.It definitely will cost you more than the standard roadfood pocket change. The local weekly rag, The "City Weekly" did their "Best of" issue the first of April and you might want to check them out on the web for additional eating options.
