I lived in SLC from 99-03, so I'll try to make some suggestions.

First of all, I'm very sorry you have to go to Orem and Ogden.

Second, keep in mind that I'm comparing restaurants to others in SLC, not to NYC. There's no Masa's in SLC.

AM:
-Coffee Garden, intersection of 900 East and 900 South. I haven't found a better mocha in NYC, and the scones are made from scratch there and amazing.
-Blue Plate Diner, 2100 South and 2100 East. Great take on huevos rancheros.

Noon
-Big City Soup, several locations, one on 400 West between 200 and 300 South. I hate soup when it's hot out, but this place is really good.
-Red Butte Cafe in Foothill Village, Foothill Drive around 2100 South. Good sandwiches and entrees; also good for dinner
-A bakery opened after I left at E St. and North Temple; might be worth checking out.

Dinner
-Martine. A great Tapas place, downtown.
-of the mult brew pubs, I like Red Rock Brewery, also downtown. Better beer and food than squatters, around the corner.
-There's an italian restuarant that I really liked near 1500 East and 1500 South...forgot the name though. Nice outdoor garden.

I wasn't too impressed with either of the French bistros: Paris or L'Avenue.

Chimayo is really good too.

Enjoy!

Chicago is the start of all weather-related air delays no matter what time of year it is.

Say hi to the Osmonds!

i can't believe you haven't noted red iguana... unless you don't like mexican? red iguana is a few miles from the airport, on west temple (near the entrance to I-80 North i think).

the italian place loran is talking about is called fresco italian cafe--definitely try to get reservations there. loved the spreads they served with bread (when i went, they had a roasted butternut squash butter spread--mmmmm)

also there is a thai restaurant that is relatively new, opened up in the past year. not sure if it would suit up to like sriripahi (sp!) in queens, but if you have a hankering, the place is called thai garden, i think that's taylorsville (4400 south and 900 e).

I remember Red Iguana after I already posted and figured I'd said enough, so I left it off. But it is great.

And I ate at that Thai restaurant in Feb - it's also really good. Avoid the Thai restuarant in Foothill Village - overpriced and nothing special.

keen to read more, hopefully in the end of this year i might get chance to see salt city by my own. Between your text really boast me up.
