Christopher’s Seafood & Prime Steak House uses only optimum 21-day-aged USDA prime handcut beef, seafood that’s flown in daily from around the world, and locally sourced produce to engineer upscale and elegant eats. The dinner menu bursts at the seams with hearty hand-cuts of meat, such as the 16-ounce New York strip ($43) or the "kings crown," boasting an 8-ounce filet mignon topped with a quarter-pound of king crab ($43). Seafood seekers can drop culinary cargo nets into stomach shipholds with oceanic options including spicy plum-glazed sockeye salmon ($25) and fresh ahi tuna ($28). Other Neptunian nourishment includes the "by sea" tasting plate, a Davy Jones' high-school locker-full of calamari, coconut shrimp, crab-stuffed mushrooms, and lobster corn-dogs ($16). Midday meal-seekers can peruse Christopher’s lunchtime menu, featuring creamy New England clam chowder ($5–$8) and a spicy blue cheese burger ($9).
With its vibrant, modern décor and dazzling handcrafted nouvelle-American cuisine made from local, seasonal, and organic ingredients whenever possible, Metropolitan has earned a multitude of accolades. From the lunch menu erupts the metro bison burger, a galloping herd of mushrooms, onions, swiss, and truffled pomme frites ($10), and the Mediterranean sampler, a tantalizing tray of hummus, baba ghanoush, olive tapenade, stewed tomatoes, and seasoned Bluetooth ($8–$12). Adventurous options pepper the dinner menu, including the Metropolitan mushroom appetizer, flanked by truffle potatoes and red-wine sauce ($6 taste, $12 full plate); the Utah trout, decorated with fiddlehead ferns, radishes, pear, and a pistachio puree ($25); and the veal chop, donning an ensemble of green apple, celery root, quinoa, and mustard jus ($35). Find repose in the martini lounge to tackle the tasty bar menu, which includes entrees such as chicken pot pie ($12); appetizers come two-for-one during the bar’s “attitude adjustment hour” starting at 5:30 p.m.
The Brazilian tradition of grilling is called churroasco (and it is pronounced shoe-HAS-ko). The tradition of churroasco has been practiced in Latin America for a long time. Since about the 1950’s it’s been here too. Tucanos brings that tradition to Salt Lake City with flair! Customers can be active in their dining by choosing the cuts of meat that they like best and, instead of struggling to get the attention of the server (we’ve all had to do it at busy, great restaurants) Tucanos uses a ‘Tucanos cue’. The idea, which is kid of ingenious, is for customers to turn their cue red side up to get their server’s attention and black side up to let them know that everything is just fine. And here, with grilled options like lobster, bacon wrapped filet mignon and beef, patrons can always find something good! There are some delicious authentic Brazilian appetizers too and for more authentic options from Brazil, customers can have a Brazilian Lemonade. There’s also the ‘Rio de Janeiro’ drink…or is it a dessert? Passion fruit, lemon-line and ice cream make this drink a great addition to your evening. At prices you can afford and an ambiance that you can’t miss, Tucanos Brazilian Grill is worth a night out!
