Salt Lake City eats, are these worthwhile?

thejavuar | Sep 12, 2012 07:17 PM

I am a DC foodie, visiting Salt Lake partly for business, partly for pleasure. I am looking for places to eat over several days, and have scoped out some likely spots. The first three days I am there, I will not have a car and will be in the Hilton near the convention center, the next three I will have a car so driving a few miles is a possibility. Here are the places I have scoped out, any other good recommendations?

Near the convention center:

Blue Iguana (they have a groupon deal)
Squatters (boss really wants to go, and I love nitro-beers :D)

In general:

Red Iguana (saw on Food Network, looks amazing)
Tiburon Fine Dining (They have a groupon, wife wants to try elk)
The Copper Onion
Crown burger (not exactly "good eats" but my wife grew up in Salt Lake and wants some fry sauce)

What do you think? Anything I should know about these places, or any other places I shouldn't miss? Also, are Red Iguana and Blue Iguana owned by the same people? Same menus etc? I had planned just to go to Red, but Blue has a groupon and is right next to the convention center. I also would appreciate another good rec for lunch within walking distance of the convention center.

Thanks in advance for any help!
