There is so much to mention about the pleasures of Takashi: the superb service; the excellent beer, sake, wine and cocktail list; the snazzy atmosphere; even the remarkable mushroom panna cotta dessert. There’s not a right or wrong way to “do” this downtown Salt Lake City gem. You can begin with lighter, raw foods like nigiri and sashimi (Takashi often has fish varieties you won’t find anywhere else), and work your way into the richer, cooked ones. For dinner, try an order of gyoza, Japanese-style pork & cabbage dumplings made in-house with clean ginger flavors and served with spicy ponzu. As with the luscious ginger-soy glazed barbecued pork ribs, you don’t have to love raw fish to love Takashi.
