Fall Into Wine
On Thursday, Oct. 8, Boulevard Bistro (1414 S. Foothill Drive) will host a five-course Fall Wine Dinner, including one of my favorite guilty pleasures: Rosa Regale Brachetto. Dinner kicks off at 6:30 p.m. with a cheese and meat plate paired with Albrecht Cremant d'Alsace NV, followed by a root-vegetable salad with sweet-basil vinaigrette and shaved Pecorino plus Archery Summit Vireton Pinot Gris 2013. A soup course of creamy pumpkin- and butternut-squash soup with balsamic glaze and toasted pepitas is paired with Rosenblum Viognier 2012. The main course is a choice of apple and apricot-stuffed Cornish game hen with sweet corn puree, fig-blackberry compote, and butternut squash mash or pecan-crusted halibut with roasted tomato and garlic wild rice, plus blueberry chutney, paired with Chamisal Stainless Pinot Noir 2013. For dessert, there's huckleberry mousse in an almond Florentine basket with fresh berries and mint. Alongside will be the luscious Rosa Regale Brachetto 2014. The cost for the Boulevard Bistro Fall Wine Dinner is $85 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Make reservations at BoulevardBistroFoothill.com, or call 801-953-1270.

Farewell, Faustina
Faustina restaurant has permanently closed, according to owner Joel LaSalle. I'll miss Faustina, but the glass is half-full with the announcement that Mikel Trapp (Trio Restaurant Group) and LaSalle (LaSalle Restaurant Group) are creating a new concept for the Faustina space. They partnered to bring us Current Fish & Oyster and Under Current, so expectations are high. As beloved as Faustina was to our dining guests, frankly, we were at capacity, and the restaurant was 10 years old," said Joel LaSalle, co-owner. "We are so excited to literally push out the walls and offer an entirely new Italian bistro dining experience in a few months. We've been working closely with Salt Lake City, the Downtown Alliance and the mayor's office to make sure this fits the urban contemporary feel of the city and fits the needs of the residents." Former Faustina chef Logan Crew will remain at the helm in the new kitchen cooking "simple and contemporary Italian cuisine."
