This week in the Deseret Morning News, Stacy Kratz dines at Michelangelo Ristorante. Sadly she finds poor service on this one particularly night. She does howwever concede the food is markedly better. Sounds like they had an off night to me, our own visit a couple of weeks back was more than fine.
Kitty Pappas’ Steak House

Ted Scheffler of the City Weekly checks out the intrigungly titled Kitty Pappas’ Steak House. There’s not really much I can add to Ted’s story on the place, it is one you need to read yourself.
Hong Kong Tea House & Restaurant
565 West 200 South, Salt Lake City, UT 84101
After months without any local reviews The Gourmand Syndrome is back with two, starting with a review of Hong Kong Tea House & Restaurant, more specifically their Dim Sum. Some of the pictures in the review look delicious. Even better is the news that they open Sundays. I think I know where an up and coming lazy Sunday afternoon is going to be spent…

The second review from The Gourmand Syndrome is of the newly opened Tulie Bakery. The Salt Lake Magazine also briefly covers Tulie Bakery earlier in the week too. Both reviewers echo the same sentiments. Prices might be a little higher than normal, but the baked goods more than make up for it. Thumbs up all around.

Vanessa Chang provides the latest review of Vienna Bistro in the Salt Lake Tribune this week. Apart from the odd under seasoned dish, or lapse in service, Vanessa adds to the chorus of plaudits for chef Frody Volgger’s authentic, house made Austrian fare.

Madeline’s Steakhouse is the focus of Your Heart Out’s review this week. A positive review all said and done, for an eatery I confess I had never even heard of. Interestingly, I note that “21 day aged” crops up on their menu. If they do indeed dry age their steaks, that is something of a rarity in Salt Lake City steakhouses. Even the big boys in town like Spencer’s and Ruth’s Chris don’t dry age, preferring the faster wet-aging approach.

Krista Smith’s Salt Lake City food blog dines at the Sugar House branch of Tsunami. Krista gives the sushi bar a whirl and finds it spot on. I really enjoy Tsunami’s sushi, its just a shame about the average wait for it to reach your table, at least in the Sugar House outlet. Krista’s review seems to suggest the bar is the way forward. Has anyone tried their other locations, are they faster at all?

Finally the much talked about Au Naturale is tested out by the In Utah This Week staff. They seem largely impressed by this new local company, who have some big ideas. See our discussion board for more information on Au Naturale SLC.
