I love Texas Roadhouse and Lonestar Steak House is awesome too! They aren't indigenous to Utah, however, but still really good!

Maybe thats why I am geared more towards them because Im used to them..lol. I know I will never find any steamed blue crabs out here and Joe Crab Shack isn't going to cut it with my tastebuds. Where I come from you don't put old bay on King Crab legs..it only goes on blue crabs, fries, turkey sandwhiches etc..lol

The oyster Bar has good seafood but it is downtown and you have to pay for a membership.

My recommendations - if you truly want the best and most varied of Salt Lake's ethnic variety:

Middle Eastern: Mazza (9th and 9th or 15th and 15th) - owner is a very friendly Lebanese and the food is first rate. Impeccable.

Japanese: many good choices; my favorites: Kyoto (11th East, 13th South), Ichiban (336 S 400 E), Mikado (67 W 100 S, downtown) - try the beef dishes at Mikado - absolutely amazing.

Indian: Bombay House (2731 E Parley's Way), Taste of Punjab (1241 E 8600 S), Royal India (10263 S 1300 E). Avoid: Taj India and Star of India - unless you like hair and cockroaches.

BBQ: Sugarhouse BBQ (2207 S 700 E), Q4U (3951 W, 5400 S). Pat's BBQ also comes highly rated among my friends.

Spanish/Mediterranean: Cafe Martine (22 E 100 S) - fantastic place. Every dish is exquisite. Impeccable service.

Cosmopolitan: Bambara (202 S Main St.) - Used to be my choice for entertaining business partners until I visited Cafe Martine.

Mexican/Aztec: Red Iguana (736 W North Temple) - a Salt Lake icon and a must visit. Ancient dishes dating from the Aztec Era. Also check out the Blue Iguana (165 S West Temple) featuring more Moles dating back to ancient Aztec cuisine. Very, very good food.

Chinese: Hong Kong Tea House (565 W 299 S) - fantastic Chinese cuisine. Under-advertised but truly a well-kept "secret". Don't waste your time waiting in line for the Mandarin up in Bountiful - this place is better and there is no wait.

Brew Pub: Red Rock (254 S 200 W) - excellent local beers and great pub food. Also check out MacCool's in Foothill village (1400 S Foothill Dr.) for great traditional Irish pub food. Desert Edge in Trolley Square is also a long-time favorite.

Vietnamese: Lai-cai Noodle House (965 S State) - very traditional. The place my Vietnamese friends take me to . . Avoid: Cafe Trang - again, hair in the food.

Thai: Bangkok Thai (3142 S Highland Dr.)

Seafood: any of the Gastronomy restaurants (Market St. Broiler, Market St. Grill, New Yorker, or the Oyster Bar).

Italian: many good choices. My local favorite is probably Lugano's on 3364 S 2300 E.

That's it for now . . . .

Good point. But I would say Bambara is a good cosmopolitan representation of New American. You used to be able to get some of the best Morgan Valley Lamb you'll ever taste, but it looks like the menu's changed now that they have a new head chef. The roasted corn bisque is to die for. They do a great job of using local ingredients. I should also have mentioned Log Haven up Millcreek Canyon - they have an excellent and varied menu. Great service and a great setting.
