Food, wine and cheese — that’s what you’ll find at Zy, a new restaurant I learned about yesterday in downtown Salt Lake City. It opened on July 25 in the old Five Star restaurant space at 268 S. State.
Zy - which rhymes with try - offers a contemporary menu with items such as lamb, salmon, steaks, pecan pork and baked macaroni and cheese, said chef/owner is Matthew Lake.
Lake has an impressive culinary resume that includes stints in New York City restaurants as well as being named one of Food & Wine magazine's "Best New Chefs" in 1996
Zy also specializes in gourmet cheeses, which have their own case in the middle of a maple butcher-block bar.
The size of the menu is manageable and so are the prices: dinner entrees range from $16 to $26.
It is open for lunch Monday-Saturday, 11:30 a.m. -2:30 p.m.; and dinner Monday-Thursday, 5-10 p.m. and Friday-Saturday, 5-10:30 p.m. Call 801-779-4730, or visit zyrestaurant.com
