I have a project in Salt Lake City so have been heading to the city regularly and for the most part getting more and more depressed about the dining situation with all the look-alike chain restaurants that serve mediocre boring food. I went for dinner with a friend there and we went to the Market Street Grill in Cottonwood. I have to say my thoughts on dining in Salt Lake have changed. The restaurant is bright and airy with a great view of the mountains through large picture windows. The menu is fairly standard for a restaurant of this style which is seafood. The prices seemed a bit high for my taste but the quality of the food did make up for it.
The sourdough bread served when you sit down was very good with a nice sourdough taste to it and nice chewy texture. We had the crab, spinach and artichoke dip to start which was okay but nothing special. For my main, I had the cedar plank salmon which was excellent. I am fussy about my salmon and this was a good piece of fish with a nice flavor from the cedar that complemented the firm tasty texture of the wild Alaskan salmon. My friend had the Chilean Sea Bass which was enjoyed.
Overall a pleasant evening with good seafood in bright and fresh surroundings. I will definitely be back.
