As others have mentioned, @Red Iguana is an amazing stop. But the food doesn't start and stop there. @Whiskey Street is a great place to get some good fare and libations. Also, @The Rest at @Bodega is a must for food. If small plates are your thing, @Eva is wonderful, as is @Manolis. @Copper Onion also has some great upscale comfort food. Enjoy your trip to Salt Lake!

So here in Utah, unlike other places around the world. We have something called fry sauce, and some very unique Pastrami burgers. So be sure to stop by either Crown BurgersAstro BurgersApollo Burger. Us Uthans go crazy for it. Hope you enjoy!

Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana: Salt Lake City has delicious pizzas cooked in the way of Naples, Italy. Himalayan Kitchen has great Nepali and Indian dishes, cooked with less fat and cream than typical Indian restaurants. Red Iguana is famous for Mexican dishes (there often are long waiting lines, sometimes more than one hour). Koko Kitchen has tasty Japanese food that goes beyond sushi, although the ambience is low key. Gourmandise The Bakery is both a bakery and a cafe, with a large selection of sweets. And check out Eva's Bakery in the morning (they have typically sold all bread and most pastries by midday).

Forage Restaurant is the most interesting experience but expensive. Red Iguana looks like a hole-in-the-wall but is absolutely delicious; sampling the moles is worth it to find your favorite. The area of 9th & 9th (900 South 900 East) is pretty adorable and has Pago (amazing for any meal - farm to table and representative of the food culture in SLC), Mazza Middle Eastern Cuisine (delicious and pretty inside), Dolcetti Gelato(try the coconut sticky rice gelato), and Coffee Garden (awesome coffee and pastries), along with the nearby Tower Theatre for indie movies.

Definitely Red Iguana. If you want a special night out Valter's Osteria is fantastic Italian.

Definitely Blue Iguana Salt Lake City and Red Iguana. Both Mexican restaurants, and actually resulted from a family split. They are beth fairly different from each other though, so you can't go wrong eating at both.

If you like Vietnamese, then you need to go to La-Cai Noodle House. They have the best PHO, hands down.

Kind of depends on what I'm in the mood for.  I'm more impressed by good food than atmosphere, especially atmosphere that has no intent other than to double or triple the price of a meal.  (Like a wise old sage once said, "You can't eat the atmosphere!")  Old Salt Lake favorites are the Garlic Burger at the Cotton Bottom Inn,  the Stromboli pizza at The Pie Pizzeria - Underground, the authentic homemade Mexican fare, especially the chili rellenos and the pozole, at the in-store cafe at the Rancho Marketgrocery (order in Spanish for better service).  My wife's favorite burger is at Lucky 13.  A more upscale in price, attitude, and execution is Frida Bistro, a chef-directed Mexican bistro with a wine list.  At this price level, still reasonable, Market Street Grill - Downtown for fresh flown seafood.  Caffé Molise for Italian.  The place I probably frequent the most is BATTERS UP for their daily specials and to watch the Jazz games (don't eat off the regular menu of frozen, pre-prepared bar fare).  Example:  Monday night, usually $8 rib-eye steak dinner.
