Salt Lake City Pizza

For sure the Pie... and Wasatch is good as well. There is a Cottonwood location and a Sandy/Draper location that both deliver.

Bambara, Mazza, Aristo's - Salt Lake

The problem you ran into with wine prices is quite typical in this city. They already have a high mark up (thanks to the DABC-state controlled liquor and wine stores). By the time you get to a dining establishment the prices have gone through the roof. I went to Melting Pot one night, the same cheap $19.00 bottle of wine I buy at the liquor store was priced at $35.00. All we can do is hope someday these crazy laws with wine will change and we can pay reasonable prices.

Bambara has a new executive chef... have not checked it out since the change... hope to soon.

PHX for a week, alone.

In a couple weeks I will be in Phoenix for business. 2 nights I have a friend taking me out, otherwise I am on my own. I will have a car and a navigation system, so the sky is the limit (so to speak). I live in Salt Lake City... so I would like to try and experience things that we do not have here... Like wine bars with yummy food, good mexican food with real margaritas. Anything unique that I can keep a meal for 1 at around 25.00 (not including spirits).

I have been to Phoenix many times, lived there until 1985. Obviously things have changed. With all my previous vists the last couple years I was with someone that stuck to the familiar... Cheesecake Factory and Claim Jumper type places. I would like to experience all the great things I hear about your dining out there.

I will be staying at the Sheraton Cresent (not a great location from what I hear-but it is by work)... but I can venture out.

My main issue is somewhere that I will feel comfortable dining alone.

I am pretty sure I am being taken to Kazimierz Wine Bar one night.

Thank you in advance!

Annual SLC trip.

If you are staying on Foothill Dr. Ruth's Diner is not far at all (just a few minutes up Emigration Canyon past the zoo) and for sure a *not miss* for breakfast. Lunch and dinner are good as well, but I prefer the breakfast and/or brunch experience.

Butterfly-Salt Lake City

I was thinking of trying this place out as part of the Dine O' Round next month. I heard mixed reviews when it first opened... now you cannot even pull up a menu on their site. Is it similar to their location in San Francisco? Or maybe they are going through changes? Any input would be appreciated.
