Salt Lake City Restaurants?

Anyone know where I would begin to look for good restaurants in Salt Lake? I'll be down there for a few days next week and would like to scout out some nice spots.

    TAKASHI for lunch is one of the best deals around.
    Caputos is great, kinda better to order stuff ala carte and take it to go.
    Cafe Trang is great for PHO, Channon is the spiciest thai I have ever had.
    HongKong Tea House is amazing. DimSum or dinner are both awesome.

      I'll second the recommendations for Tin Angel. It might be worth you calling ahead for reservations if you do go. It's not a huge place and can get full quickly at the weekends.

      I'll also suggest Meditrina, a new small plates joint, which I think is excellent: www.meditrinaslc.com

        You might also consider the Wild Grape Bistro, which occupies the space formerly held by Avenues Bakery on South Temple. Their menu is similar to that of Tin Angel and Meditrina.

          On a recent trip we liked Acme Burger company & Red Iguana (worth the trip & the wait for a seat!)

        Good suggestions from andyeats. Are you downtown then? Also try Mazza for lunch or dinner. Don't miss red iguana if you can get in and the Tin Angel suggestion is great for dinner too!

          Mazza, Red Iguana and Tin Angel would be my first 3 choices for consistently excellent chow experiences. Good calls!

          What type of food are you looking for?

          Here are a few recommendations:
          Settebello (excellent VPN pizza)
          Tin Angel (I enjoyed a fantastic lunch there)
          Tony Caputo's Market & Deli (they have great deli sandwiches and a fantastic selection of chocolates)

          On my next trip there, I want to try Cucina Toscana.

          Here's another resource:

          Tin Angel
          365 W 400 S Salt Lake, City, UT

          Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana
          260 S 200 W, Salt Lake City, UT 84101

          Tony Caputo Market & Deli
