Dining room at Bambara, Salt Lake City, UT

Bambara Restaurant Review

: With its bronze light fixtures, arched windows and velvet curtains, the restaurant at the Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City has an urban, sophisticated feel. Executive chef Nathan Powers, who has worked at San Francisco restaurants such as Stars, Hawthorne Lane and Farallon, has created a seasonal, modern American menu that favors sustainable ingredients. Starters include blue cheese house-cut potato chips or corn bisque with crab. From the entrées, the pork duo (bacon-wrapped tenderloin and balsamic-glazed ribs) is a standout. Diners can complement their meal with a selection from the mostly American wine list, with many options available by the glass, or with a local brew such as Polygamy Porter or Provo Girl Pilsner. One of the best deals in town is the Power Lunch --- three courses for $13. Don't bother hunting for street parking; use the valet or you'll miss dinner.
