Bambara Restaurant at Hotel Monaco

Of course such a hip swanky hotel has a stylish restaurant.  Why have I not been here before?  I guess my best explanation is that there’s is such a growing amount of fine dining restaurants in Salt Lake that its hard to keep up, especially if you’re on a budget, which I am.

Ladies Who Lunch visit Eva

Our monthly gathering of gals for lunch, recently checked out Eva. Their tapa-style dinner as well as their Sunday brunch are easy to love, but I had yet to try their lunch offering.  After sampling many dishes during the lunch hour, I can now say I am an advocate for Eva at any meal time.

For lunch we tried, their Eva Pie, a basic single serve pizza with robust flavor and perfectly baked crust.…
