Restaurant R.I.P. I didn’t see this one coming: Baxter’s American Restaurant at The Gateway Shopping Center has closed. I’m told the closure wasn’t totally an economic decision. Frankly, I was fond of Baxter’s and hate to see it go. It was a great addition to the downtown dining scene in Salt Lake City. Any restaurateurs searching for a chef could do a lot worse than Baxter’s American former executive chef Joseph Davis. n n

Thai me up! According to owner Vipada Chitratont, the former Thai Garden has reopened as Thai Garden Restaurant and Noodles House. In addition to traditional authentic Thai dishes, the restaurant now offers Thai-style noodles starting at $4.99. Thai Garden Restaurant and Noodles House is located at 4410 S. 900 East, 266-7899.

Half-price dining! Park City’s Easy Street Brasserie is offering half-price entrees through November, including its lobster “mac & cheese,” Chilean sea bass, steamed PEI mussels, beef tenderloin and 20-ounce ribeye. Easy Street is located in the Sky Lodge at 201 Heber Ave. in Park City, and its phone is 435-658-9425.

Chef on the move: According to a spokesperson for Bambara restaurant, “Executive chef Dave Jones will be leaving to return to Log Haven restaurant. We are very sad to lose such a talent and great friend, but we fully support him and wish him great success in his new undertaking.” A national chef search is underway, and I’m told that Bambara is very close to announcing its new chef. Stay tuned.

Quote of the week: If African women were to stop working for one day, there would be no food, no caring for the sick, no sewing, no trading in the market. Life would stop for that day. —Ruth Bamela Engo-Tjega
