• The Fall Downtown Dine O’ Round in September was a big success. And it’s not over yet at Bambara restaurant. “We are continuing these wildly popular specials to give people a little break at less than our Dine O’ Round price,” says Art Cazares, Bambara general manager. All year round at Bambara, chef Dave Jones will offer a three-course Blue Plate Special lunch for $11 and his Chef’s Pantry three-course dinner for $28. The menu changes daily, featuring seasonal local organic and farm products when available. 202 S. Main St., 363-5454, Bambara-SLC.com.
