The Weekly Whisk - 8/17/18

Musings from a foodie…

Now, I’m from North Dakota and, while I love the state, I don’t expect to find over-the-top, fabulous restaurants – except my favorite greasy spoons in little towns littered across the state.  That being said, I was flummoxed when I traveled to Salt Lake City for a visit to Valter’s Osteria [* * * * ]. The food was great but the service was outstanding!!  It’s an Austrio-Italiano-Americano type of place hosted by none other than Valter Nassi – the host of Salt Lake City cuisine par excellence!!  He’s Italian so that flavor dominates.  The antipasti was a Caprese Salad of sliced tomatoes, mozzarella, olive oil (of course) and fresh basil.  The primi was a ravioli pomodoro with a homemade spinach and ricotta stuffing followed by our choice of scaloppini al funghi, pollo alla peperonata (a chicken with a mozzarella and red bell pepper reduction sauce), or salmone al pomodoro.  I got my signed menu for my collection and surprise gift of Valter’s special olive oil that is grown on his vineyard back in Italy.  It was special!!  I’d go again – and, will!!! Check him out: Valter’s Osteria 173 Broadway, Salt Lake City, UT 84101 – (801) 521-4563
