Special dinner in Salt Lake
I want to get a gift certificate as a wedding gift for someone currently living in SLC. I'm looking for something really special, a meal they wouldn't normally treat themselves to. Not too stodgy, just phenomenal food. Any suggestions for a memorable meal? I did some research and came up with Bambara, Cucina Toscana, Metropolitan and Takashi. Any standouts? Am I missing anything in my list? Many thanks in advance.
If it was just about the food I'd recommend Bambara. I would also add Cafe Madrid and Tiburon to the list of best SLC restaurants.
Howver, since it is for a wedding gift you may want to look at Log Haven. They are usually in everyone's top 3 and I can't imagine a more romantic setting. Look for the website, they have photo's. It's a really spectacular drive. Log Haven, will fully satisfy the foodie while also being a more romantic and adventurous option.
Also, since it won't show up on anyone's best restaurant list I'll mention that if they are an LDS couple they may enjoy The Roof at the top of the Joseph Smith Memorial building. It's a high end buffet, about as good as the better buffets in Las Vegas, but the west wall is all glass overlooking Temple Square. It might be the right choice depending on who you are buying for.
