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).
At Dry Creek Steakhouse, beef is king, and that king's name is Angus. Working with certified Angus steaks, chefs introduce filet mignon, new york strip, and choice sirloin to the waiting flames of their grill. These cooked-to-order cuts form the backbone of the menu, but they're not the only delicious preparations that await diners. Rich pastas, inventive chicken dishes, and seafood including Atlantic salmon and Maine lobster occupy their own indulgent corners of the expansive menu.
Carvers Steaks and Seafood flavors its eponymous catches and chops with sauces spiced with whiskey and peppercorn, or butters churned with garlic, Pernod, or Cajun spices. These and other seasonings top generously portioned Carvers Cuts of filet mignon, prime rib, and other meats, as well as halibut fillets and lobster tails caught off the coast of Maine. The dinner menu also includes vegetarian dishes, such as a pear and feta garden salad, as well as raspberry-vanilla bread pudding for dessert.
Jars of Korean kimchi and delicate spheres of salmon roe dot Dahn Sushi’s kitchen, adding artful flourishes to a menu of classic Japanese cuisine. Sushi, the restaurant’s specialty, ranges from dainty duos of eel nigiri to hand rolls packed with tuna, octopus, or red snapper. Diners can belly up to the sushi bar and take notes as they watch the chefs chop, slice, and roll their creations into vibrant spreads, some of which look like friendly caterpillars. In addition to serving small groups within the scarlet dining room, Dahn's staff delivers giant platters of sushi to parties, meetings, and mermaids’ swim meets.
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!
